Ron Dibble has no uvula. And though it seems a small thing, he’s convinced the whole world sees him as a freak. How will he ever win his dream-girl’s affections given his “shortcoming”? He tries psychiatry and mail order, but in the end he desperately turns to plastic surgery in hopes of gaining the self-esteem he’s longed for all of his life.
