Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Sister Faustina (Flora Mastroianni) has been a nun all her adult life. Now the orphanage she has run for many years is in danger of being closed, and she herself is in poor health. Her faith is not quite enough to sustain her at this time of crisis. However, four of her former charges have returned to the orphanage for a reunion. Each one has a particularly challenge to face: Marta (Bettina Giovannini) is being dumped by her married lover, Claudia (Claudia Muzzi) can't bear the thought of having her pesky old grandfather move in with her as he wants to, Sabrina (Sabrina Ferilli) is attractive only to the kinds of men who will hurt her, and Lorella (Lorella Morlotti) can't keep from stealing things and getting into trouble. While none of these women can solve the others' problems, the mere fact of sharing them lightens their burden.
