Quirky comedy directed by Allan Mindel. Milwaukee's best fisherman, Albert Burroughs (Troy Garrity) - a young man generally perceived to be mentally disabled - becomes the target of two separate con artists out to steal his money. Having lived his whole life under the watchful eye of his overbearing mother, Edna (Debra Monk), Albert must fend for himself when she is suddenly killed by an unidentified vehicle. He quickly responds to every bit of bait that is dangled in front of him, putting his aggressors against one another in a race for his trust. When his one and only friend attempts to intervene, Albert's compelling history is unveiled, and it becomes apparent that nothing is quite what it seems. Using the skills that make him such a gifted fisherman, Albert turns the tables on his seemingly doomed fate, capturing the heart of the woman most eager to deceive him, and fooling the man most intent on destroying him.
