Ernie hopes that a job creating postage stamps will improve his situation with women and inspire him to create timeless and memorable art that will be licked and seen by millions. Instead he finds Gurdna Shagidi, a self-assured woman with a haunting past, who pushes his feeble self-confidence to the limits. For Ernie Klemper, his short stint at creating postage stamps changes him forever.
