A story about writing stories. Having lived on the dreary Belgian coast for three years, Richard returns to his homeland seeking fame and fortune. Instead, he finds a ginger genius called Titus, and together, they push the boundaries of language itself. While Titus aims to become a Scrabble master, Richard aspires to become a great writer, finding meaning in words which Titus learns purely for their points value. Titus aims to win board games, but Richard aims to win the heart of the woman of his dreams.
