A fun and compact plot connects with the audience
The plot of this movie revolves around Oscar. He is basically a bluestreak cleaner wrasse, who is not doing too well and dreams about getting all famous and rich. He works as a tongue scrubber at the Whale Wash in his locality. One day when he comes to work, his boss, Sykes, calls him to discuss about 5,000 clams that he owes. He needs to return it the very next day. Oscar gets the money by pawning the pink pearl of his best friend, Angie's grandmother. He then comes to the race track to meet his boss, and somehow finds himself lured into placing a bet there. Lola, a beautiful lionfish notices this and seduces Oscar, but she leaves on hearing that he is a whale washer. Oscar loses the bet eventually, and he is tortured and electrocuted by Sykes' jellyfish thugs. This is spotted by Frankie, the son of the shark crime lord. He asks his vegetarian brother, Lenny, to attack. In the process, Frankie gets killed by an anchor that falls on him. Everyone flees the spot then, except Oscar, who is mistakenly held responsible for Frankie's murder. However, instead of defending himself, Oscar decides to make the most of this situation in order to gain fame.
