Fernando Pessoa is commissioned to create an advertising slogan for the soda Crazy-Cola. The portuguese executive believes the poet fits perfectly for the task, since what’s a slogan if not a poem? In addition, the poet thinks it’ll be an excellent financial business. But they got it all wrong. The consequences of the feat will be drastic: an intercontinental battle between the american empire and the portuguese dictatorship. Who will be the winner?
