Judy Carrier, an associate at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates, takes on the defense of an old Italian pigeon-keeper who killed because of a 50-year-old vendetta. A brilliant legal scholar, Judy believes she knows the definition of justice. But after hearing Pigeon Tony's confession of murder, she's not so sure. The subtle complexities of the case point to the fact that he really doesn't deserve to go to prison. The pressure builds as she tries to mount a convincing defense. With help from Tony's grandson, a terrific guy and a hunk to boot, it looks as if Judy just may get her client off the hook. Until the vendetta comes to life and a deadly case of murder takes an even deadlier twist.
