When Angelo is restoring an old church in Rome, he finds a small bird, barely breathing. Not being able to find somewhere safe to leave her, he has no choice but to take her home with him. Despite Angelo's 'professional dislike for pigeons', the pair become friends, and Angelo names the bird Sylvia. Eventually, Sylvia is able to repay Angelo's kindness by supporting him when he needs it most.
