Storyline

Little does Sister Bertrille know, but she's sleep-flying. On one of her sleeping flights, she comes across Carlos with Sophia Novello, the daughter of a business associate Antonio Novello. Carlos was driving Sophia home after a party when their car got stuck in a mud-hole. Getting Sophia home late will look bad for known womanizer Carlos, especially since Sophia is engaged to Paco Lopez, the son of Antonio's best friend. But Carlos has Sister Bertrille as a witness - or so he thinks. When Antonio confronts Carlos about Sophia's extremely late arrival home, Carlos goes to get Sister Bertrille to vouch for him, which she refuses to do since she witnessed nothing. Carlos and Sister Bertrille sever their relationship over this, Carlos because she won't help him, and Sister Bertrille because he asked her to lie blatantly for him. Equally as worse for Carlos and the Novellos, Antonio ceases a business relationship which will ruin Carlos financially, and Paco calls off the engagement over ... Written by Huggo

The Sleep Flyer
23 October 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Sister Bertrille has taken sleep walking one step further by sleep flying, unknown to all. She flies down in that state late at night upon Carlos whose car is stranded in the mud with the gorgeous, young Sofia Novello (Cynthia Hull). When Senior Antonio Novello (Joe De Santis) angrily comes to the casino the next day, Carlos asks Sister Bertrille to corroborate his story, but she has no recollection of what he's talking about. The incident leads to a broken engagement for Sofia with her fiancee Paco Lopez (Frank Ramirez). Meanwhile, Reverend Mother Placido and Sister Jacqueline catch Sister Bertrille flying in her sleep. They confront Sister Bertrille who joins Carlos in trying to clear things up with Senior Novello. But doing so would expose her secret flying ability.
