Albert is special. He can hear fish talking under ice. ThatĘs his secret to being a champion fisherman. HeĘs well into his twenties but his Mom still accompanies him to ice fishing tournaments, where he has won hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money. When street-smart Tuey and her hypochondriac teenage brother Stan drift into AlbertĘs quaint Milwaukee suburb, they stumble upon an opportunity to fill their empty pockets. Smooth-talking salesman Jerry James has also sleazed into town and is also on the lookout for a quick buck. Everyone is after AlbertĘs hidden fortune.
