A young nun in remote northern Michigan has been murdered. Her superior, Father Rivard, banished to the small parish, is charged with the crime. While the trial unfolds, Rivard's story reveals a tragic string of events that pit human passions against the forces of tradition and strict morality. As circumstances force Sister Rita to move into the rectory, her attempts to bring life to the dull, provincial parish stir long-hidden feelings in Rivard and his parishioners, leading to an explosive revelation and an unexpected sacrifice.
