A city bus driver discovers that his father who abandoned him thirty years earlier has, at the moment of his death, left him an inheritance: the throne of a near-Medieval kingdom.

In so doing, he finally sheds his inferiority complex towards his father figure, and at long last heals the wounds of his abandonment.
