Made for Spanish television, Fable of the Beautiful Pigeon Fancier (Fabula de la Bella Palomera) stars Claudia Ohana in the title role. Though she is a wife and mother, she is ardently pursued by powerful businessman Ney Latorraca, who uses Ohana's beloved pigeons to transmit messages of love to her. Eventually, a passionate affair results, with Latorraca claiming his "property" by painting a message on Ohana's abdomen. It is thus only a matter of time before the woman's husband tumbles to the clandestine romance. Gabriel Garcia Marquez co-adapted the script of Fable of the Beautiful Pigeon Fancier from his own short story.
