What Is the Story of The Divine Sister?
The Divine Sister follows a group of nuns in a Pittsburgh convent, struggling to keep their parish alive. The church’s Mother Superior seeks the financial aid of a local rich Jewish woman who harbors a dark secret. Back at the church, the head nun must also deal with an old flame hoping to rekindle their romance, a young postulant who claims she has visions of God and a suspicious nun sent to the convent from Germany.
