Storyline

Diana Ross and The Supremes play a trio of nuns, one of whom is a native of the village where they hope to build a hospital. The leader of the village is wary of Sister Therese because she left their belief and way of life for a new one. Also, the nuns do not realize that the white man claiming to be helping them actually wants to take over the village land for his own use. Written by rbecker28
