In New York City, an unemployed young man finds a job in a shooting gallery as a living target. After a while, the man falls in love and lives in the gallery with his wife at gunpoint. Finally, they give birth to baby, and the shooting range owner wants to use it as another target, too. Disgusted, the family flies off, but there are a lot of other unemployed people to fill their position.
