Plot: Lars Lindstrom plays a painfully bashful young guy in a tiny northern town who eventually brings the girl of his dreams home to his brother and sister-in-law. The only problem is that she isn't real; she's a sex doll Lars purchased off the Internet. Lars, on the other hand, is looking for a deep, meaningful connection rather than sex. His sister-in-law is concerned for him, and his brother believes he's crazy, but the entire town gradually joins in on his illusion in support of this good-natured lad they've always adored.
