His brother and sister-in-law worry that something is wrong with him, until one day he finally gathers the courage to show up at their house with a date. However, his date is no ordinary girl. It’s a life-sized “love doll” named Bianca he ordered online. His brother (Paul Schneider) thinks he has gone insane, while his sister-in-law (Emily Mortimer) convinces everyone to play along with Lars’ delusion. Surprisingly, Bianca changes the whole town. From volunteering at day cares to getting a job as a fashion mannequin at the mall, Bianca touches the hearts of everyone. Lars even gets a little jealous that he has to share his “girlfriend” with the rest of the town.
