The Flying Falcones is a story of love, loss and sausage. Lots of sausage! Following a tragic circus accident in Italy, a family of aerialists emigrate to Canada in the 1970s where they start a sausage-making business. Today, their heirs struggle to grow the family business while Lina Falcone, the family matriarch, undergoes psychiatric assessment.

Rosemarie Catanzaro is a young, successful career woman who takes a stand against racism and loses. At the age of 33, she's lost her job, her boyfriend and now her beloved sports car. The only asset she owns is a ridiculously expensive shoe collection. Desperate to hang on to her fabulous apartment, Rosemarie is forced to find a roommate to share the cost. To make ends meet, she takes a mininum wage job in the meat-department of Falcone Fine Foods. Circus performers cum sausage-makers, depraved and daffy co-workers and the disenfranchised conspire to transform Rosemarie's so-called life. Sometimes for the better!

Lina's mental health declines rapidly. She is diagnosed with dementia and showing signs of schizophrenia. During Lina's extended absence, Rosemarie is recruited to help with the bookkeeping and discovers a dangerous secret while concealing one of her own.
