Charlie is a man with a portable cassette player for a head, who communicates by playing selections of music and sounds from his own collection. He is at the mercy of his own tape archive and blindly fumbles for the right bit of music or recording to ask out Emerald, a woman with a portable CD player for a head. Alas, all is not going well, and so Charlie seeks the assistance of the wise old Hero Wasabi, an old man with a gramophone for a head. On the shelves of his considerable library, Hero locates the perfect song to suit the situation.
