Synopsis

Sister Ada’s quiet, cloistered life is turned upside down when she’s busted reading secretly about cinema and the seductive life of movie stars by her superiors in the convent. To atone for her sins, she’s entrusted a mission: she must go to the cruising area of the city park and lead the sinners and deviants she finds there to the more righteous path. However, once among them, Ada recognizes herself in the sinners and decides to leave the convent for good. She flees to New York, beckoned by a city she had so often been dazzled by on glimmering movie screens. The city is mesmerizing, but mysterious dangers lurk, and Ada will only be able to find her true deliverance with the support of the new gods she discovers in Manhattan.
