Based on the Newbery Honor-winning book by Jerry Spinelli, WRINGER tells the hilarious and heartfelt story of Palmer, a 10-year-old boy who’s about to take part in his town’s annual pigeon shoot. When he secretly befriends a pigeon, taking him in as a pet, Palmer finally finds the strength to stand up to peer pressure and speak out against the town’s violent tradition.
