Sister James is a naive young nun who has an idealistic outlook on the world. She finds herself caught in a battle between the rather jovial Father Brendan Flynn and the forbidding Sister Aloysius Beauvier. The latter is the principal of the school where Sister James is a teacher, and Father Flynn is the parish priest. She runs a tight ship, and at first the young nun believes that she is just on a power trip when she goes up against the priest. She feels very guilty because her own off-hand remark launches Sister Aloysius's crusade. However, she begins to wonder whether there might be any truth to the older nun's stated suspicions that the priest has an inappropriate relationship with one of their schoolboys.
