Oliver is a thirteen-year-old orphan with poetic skills. He dreams about a better life. When he moves from his orphanage to a mysterious school, he finds out that the teachers act oddly, providing strange facts about the world.
After some misunderstandings, the boy convinces himself that the school staff wants him dead. He flees and discovers that the world is another dimension but realizes that the educators are allies who want to protect him from an evil king. The king wants the orphan's death because he is afraid that he can take his place, and he is liable for the murder of the Oliver's parents.
To become king, the candidates read their poems, and the citizens choose the best. Will Oliver write a poem to win the election despite the king's efforts to find him?
