Lars Lindstrom is a painfully shy, highly introverted young man who avoids social situations and personal contact at all costs. He has been living in his brother's garage, alone and unwilling to visit his brother, Gus, or his pregnant wife.
Then one day Lars announces he has met a lady friend over the internet and she is visiting. Bianca is quiet, wheelchair bound, a missionary from Brazil and deeply religious so Lars arranges for Bianca to stay in his Gus' house. There is just one little problem. Bianca is a highly realistic love doll.
Lars is having a delusion, the doll allows him to believe he is in a relationship. But when the local psychologists insists that the delusion be allowed to play out, Lars' brother, sister-in-law and even the townspeople begin to adjust and accept the totally absurd situation.
A terrific light drama that plays everything straight. It is concerned with Lars and his progression out of self imposed seclusion to member of the community.
