Steven is a recently unemployed lovable loser who has difficulty expressing himself. Steven's best friend is Fanny, an aspiring singer, who, along with Steven, is just looking for her niche. Eventually Fanny takes a shine to Yiddish music and Steven finds he has a knack for ventriloquism. Through his newfound talent, Steven discovers that he is able to overcome his social problems through his dummy and decides to try impressing and winning the heart of Lorena.
