Synopsis

This documentary delves into the fascinating world of ventriloquism, sometimes named "belly talking." Director Sandra Lucklow and her dummy "Juanito" hit the road, exploring the variety of personas and purposes within the ventriloquist community. Famous entertainers, a preacher, a psychotherapist who works with children, and a young boy with ventriloquist aspirations are among the subjects Lucklow explores.
