Boris Plotz, Director of the Plotz Funeral Home, dreamed of only two things as a young boy: dancing and Betty. Betty secretly loved Boris, but could not find her father's wishes, so she was married off to a gold digger. Boris gave up his dreams and took over the family's undertaking business in their small town. Everything has remained status quo in their lives until Betty's mother-in-law dies. Betty and Boris discover that the only obstacle between their love for one another is Betty's marriage to the two-timing mayor. In a desperate Bid for Happiness, Boris and Betty decide to stage her death and run away together.
