Storyline

An aspiring artist runs from men as a result of an early life problem that has left her relationship with her father strained. She decides to move into a convent where troubled women receive cheap lodging in exchange for work. She finds a dirty area in the basement where she paints a mural that deals with all of her psychological problems. While some find it gaudy, others such as the mother superior realizes its potential to save the convent which is to be closed. During all this the artist starts a relationship with a man who owns an art supply shop where she shop-lifts her supplies. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Trivia

Although she did not disclose it until 2002, Teri Garr is already showing visible signs of Multiple Sclerosis in this film. It is most noticeable when she is walking and talking with Soosh (Moira Kelly) outside and they walk down a ramp, with Teri holding on to the railing and walking on almost a diagonal with a weird limp.

Good cast
20 March 1999 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I guess this film never found a distributor, since I never heard of it until it hit cable. A lot of familiar names in the cast, who all did creditable performances. Moira Kelly did well with her role, which contained considerable character development. Christopher Lloyd played his role refreshingly low-key. A better film than I expected.
