Albert is special. He can hear fish talking under the ice. That´s his secret to being a champion fisherman. Everyone is after his hidden fortune. But he´s a lot smarter than everyone thinks. At least he knows that Milwaukee is not in Minnesota. 


Synopsis

Albert is special. He can hear fish talking under ice. That´s his secret to being a champion fisherman. He´s well into his twenties, but 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 Albert´s quaint Milwaukee suburb, they stumble upon an opportunity to fill their empty pockets. Smooth-talking salesman Jerry James has also sleazed into town and he´s also on the lookout for quick buck. Everyone is after Albert´s hidden fortune. But everyone has underestimated Albert. He´s a lot smarter than everyone thinks. At least he knows that Milwaukee is not in Minnesota.
