Synopsis

Self-proclaimed music virtuoso Buster Wilhelm will proudly play his tunes for you. He may insult your appearance and slander your character, but he guarantees they are all masterpieces. He's looking for his big break and it doesn't help that the listening public has no musical taste. Or that his fellow buskers cramp his style. But the show must go on, and so do the mishaps and adventures of Buster. He soon finds the Lennon to his McCartney in the form of Felicia, a shy awkward girl who expresses her anger towards her father on stage with a helpless ventriloquist dummy. Buster decides to liberate Felicia from her oppressive father, much in the same way that his music liberates his audience.
