Norman Oppenheimer is an absolutely average and utterly uninteresting man who wants nothing more than to get to the top. It doesn't matter how, only that the position is prominent. One day, he gets lucky when he helps an Israeli politician who later becomes a prime minister. Norman's life changes dramatically, but his abilities don't meet the demands of the new situation. This tragicomic drama shows the fate of a man whose ambitions cause a disaster.
