Jim sees himself as an ideas man - always has been and always will be. But even though his entrepreneurial endeavours have so far only met with knock backs, Jim refuses to be cowed. And now, with the most important week of his life ahead of him, the bolt of inspiration is about to strike. Realising that everyone has a novel locked inside of them, Jim has shunned work and a holiday in Crete to devote the week to creating his very own Ulysses. Driven to despair, his wife Kath has shown him the door. But unbeknown to her, the challenge of winning her back is just the sort of quest his novel was lacking.
