In underground clubs around the country is an undiscovered phenomenon called slam poetry where gifted poets fresh off the street go to war with each other through words. One night during one of these rants a gifted poet, Jake Thompson, is discovered by an attractive publisher, Marni Elliot, looking for new poets.
