Great TV Work, 20 November 2003
Author: rhackney from Sacramento, CA

This tearful movie about a sister and her battle to save as many souls as she can is very moving. The film does well in picking up the characters and showing how Sister Helen deals with each.

A wonderful journey from life to death.
