William is a happy little boy who wants only one thing: a doll. His brother calls him a sissy, and his father buys him "boy" toys to try to get him to change. When William's understanding grandmother learns what William wants, she takes him to the store and chooses a doll for him. She knows that William needs the doll to cuddle and love, and to help him become a caring father one day.
