In the story, Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder and is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won’t be a found: a convent. Disguised as a nun, Van Cartier finds herself at odds with the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior.
Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Van Cartier breathes new life into the church and community. But this outreach causes her to blows her cover. Soon, a gang chases her down, only to find Van Cartier and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
