Lawyer Judy Carrier takes the case of her career when 'Pigeon Tony' Lucia is arrested for the murder of his lifelong
enemy Angelo Coluzzi. It's not exactly The Sopranos: Lucia is a mild-mannered octogenarian pigeon fancier, driven to murder by a vendetta begun more than fifty years ago in Mussolini's Italy. He freely admits to his crime. His only defence is that his victim deserved it. Her client's guilt, however, is only the beginning of Judy's problems. The Coluzzi family wants revenge, and they are determined to finish off Pigeon Tony and Judy before the case can go to trial. And if that isn't enough, Judy's got to contend with Tony's magnetic grandson, Franck, a man who makes her think about everything but the law, and her boss, the no-nonsense Bennie Rosato. In a case steeped in blood and memory, it will take more than a stroke of brilliance to save Pigeon Tony.
