Pepper is a college professor of English Lit who cannot get his own book published. Sick of rewriting and resumitting it, he tosses the ms into a recycling bin. Hank, the trash man, finds it. He has connections in the publishing world. Hank soon has a best-seller on his hands and a pending movie sale. The conflict between these two propels the action from Tucson to show biz in Santa Monica.
