Leopold Bloom is a young gifted writer, but his mother believes he is the product of an affair. For this she resents him. Stephen on the other hand, is an ex-convict. He's quiet and controlled, as is Leopold. In a class, Leopold is asked to write a letter for an exercise. He writes this letter to a convict, where it is received by Stephen. They exchange letters, and become each others only friends.
The ending is cliched, but with the rest of this highly original behind it, there was no other way.
You'll be surprised by how moving this becomes towards the end after remaining quite sterile for most of its runtime.
