"If I don't see a point to this I'll be very angry. And you don't want to see an angry judge who is craving pie!"

The star quarterback of Riverview High School has been charged with murder most fowl! Rooster, to be precise.

Plucky the mascot has been done in and all fingers point to the football player - even his own.

A farce of a trial ensues featuring an inept judge, an unprepared defence lawyer, and an Egg-Girl.

The audience plays the jury in this hilarious black comedy. Two possible endings!
