Carey, a dim-bulbed and lonesome cobbler and his bookkeeper-pal Paul run the broken-down Mr. Happy Shoe Repair. Paul is well aware of Carey's mental deficit and so quietly acts as his guardian. One day Carey meets a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, he is unable to find her again, and he grows despondent until he decides to take out a personal ad in hopes of finding her. The ploy works and Carey goes on a romantic date with Anna that starts off well but ends disastrously when Carey's pent-up longings get the best of him. It takes time, but eventually Anna returns to the shop for some repairs and shortly afterward a romance ensues. The trouble begins when the equally lonely Paul gets jealous of his simpleton friend's newfound happiness.
