Ida Short has a propensity to attract people who steal from her... and if there is one thing she WILL NOT tolerate, it's a "little thief".
When Ida's store is robbed, she calls on estranged law enforcement officer, and sister-in-law, Denise, to help find the perpatrator. And although their relationship is strained, due to the fact Ida's brother drained both of their bank accounts, then disappeared, Denise agrees to help.
Denise's twin daughters, Danni and Daisy are not happy they have to stay with Aunt Ida. They think she's weird. Plus, Denise had promised the girls a trip to the redemption center so they could turn in their soda cans and buy the new game they had been saving for. Disappointed,and six bucks short of their goal, the twins are looking for a way to come up with extra funds, and suddenly, Aunt Ida's purse is very tempting.
