    • Synopsis
    • Two brothers get caught up in a bitter battle for honour when they attempt to save their ailing publishing company by having an uncultured but attractive woman pose as the author of an unknown talent’s literary masterpiece. When the very attractive Brigitte shows up with a horrible manuscript at publisher Goudemondt, the brothers Marc and Boudewijn (directors of the ailing family-publisher) sense possibilities. They make her switch roles with an unsightly and stuttering author of a literary masterpiece. The conspiracy works; the book becomes both artistically and financially a huge success, but the initial agreement between all parties overturns into a bitter strife for acknowledgement.
