Simone Beaulieu, better known as Mother Augustine, runs a convent school for girls in the 1960s.

When her talented but rebellious niece joins the convent and the government threatens to shut down the school in favor of public education, her world is suddenly turned upside down.

Or will she perish with tradition?
