Her sisters mock her, classmates call her a phony and worst of all, her mother has become convinced that Harriet has a religious vocation.

As she prepares for her First Communion, Harriet is caught between wanting to please her mother and longing to be like other girls.

My fear of Nuns is again validated!

If you grew up Catholic or grew up listening to the stories of those who did, this short film will hit home. It reminds me of every reason why my family didn't like "those people" down the street and every reason I detested my own religious schooling! In the end, families stick together for their salvation - who knows about the neighbors!

I got a chance to see this film at a film festival and hear a bit of Q&A with the writer. I laughed so much that I went out of my way to get a DVD of this to share with my some friends who grew up in the same era of this film and have rarely seen them laugh so much... what can I say

  • they were the ones who went to the Noon Mass!
