It is a beautiful winter Saturday and Tony Norgard (Joey Albright) really wants to go ice fishing. But he is supposed to attend his mother-in-law's birthday party the same day. Tony feigns illness and stays in bed. While his little white lie allows him the chance for a secret outing, it comes with a heavy price. Throughout the day, misfortune seems to greet him at every turn. When Tony meets up with his dad, Frank (Ernest Borgnine), things get worse. It turns out the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree. Through it all, Tony is dwarfed by the magnitude of his compounding troubles. But he s an optimistic man,and in his own way tries to put the best spin on the mess he has created, while enjoying an obsession for the age-old art of ice fishing.
