Aloysius want to sing with his grandmother in the church choir - but he can't carry a tune!

"Ali" asks his grandmother why he can't sing. She tells him that singing is a gift from God

Ali decides to search for God to ask Him for the "gift"

In this search he meets unusual characters, among them: Virgil, an Indian taxi driver and a rollerblading girl with orange hair who tries to teach Ali how to sing like Elvis

And then an Italian boatman; two eccentric sisters who run a homeless shelter; a penniless man who thinks he's Humphrey Bogart

And also a weeping bride who wants to sing a song about a rattlesnake at her wedding

Ali's odyssey leads him to big truths about the world

Back at home, he wonders if one of those strange people could have been God in disguise

He sings a song about a rabbit. He sings well. Not as good as others, but not too badly

Satisfied at last, he thanks God and goes to sleep
