Rating: 3/5

Grace longs to be human. They fall in love and have children. Some have adorable animals. They indulge on ice cream, stuffed hot dogs and coffee. However, she’s stuck in a plastic body that won’t move. However, seeing Mickey allows her to be alive. She realizes she has powerful singing voice, which impresses Mickey. For a few hours, she performs with his band. But she knows it’s only temporary. Mickey decides to give up his human life and become a mannequin.

Jonathan, though, from Mannequin, believes no one will appreciate his work. Emmy is his greatest creation. His passion for his art bonded him to her, allowing her to be human. Emmy asks for his opinion as she shops in the store and dances to music for the first time. However, she can’t prevent Jonathan from getting in trouble with the police. She loves being human and Jonathan has become her best friend.
