Brian is 17
and lives in NJ. He gets a phone call from an old
girlfriend in NYC. She wants him to visit her ASAP.
When he arrives, her room is dark, a stranger kills
her, knocks Brian out, and then leaves. The phone
rings and wakes Brian up. A voice tells Brian that
hes a "Pigeon" and he's being "set up" as the
murderer of his old girlfriend. Brian runs away.
The police arrive, yell for him to stop and shoot
him in the arm. He gets away. The next morning,
he's still hiding from the police, the bullet is
still in his arm, the NY Times has his picture in
it, and he knows that the only way to avoid going
to prison is to find the true murder.
