Watch The Pigeon That Took Rome
American military officers Joe Contini and Paul MacDougall are sent on a spy mission to Italy during the waning days of World War II. They are able to send back vital information attached to the legs of carrier pigeons. But their delivery system suffers a severe setback when one of their partners in the resistance kills all but one of the pigeons to serve as a feast for his daughter's wedding day. The pigeons he substitutes as carrier replacements endanger the future of Contini and MacDougall's spy mission as well as their lives.
