Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Though the title translates literally to Sister Unafraid, Sor Intrepida was released in English-speaking regions as Path to the Kingdom. Dominique Blanchar plays a popular singer who forsakes fame and fortune for the life of a nun. She has a few doubts about her calling, but all these are swept aside when she champions the cause of a young paralytic boy who has been numbed into utter helplessness by his judgemental parents. She also saves a few other souls, fortuitiously just in time for the Christmas holidays. A few moments skirt the edge of irreverence, but otherwise Sor Intrepida was eminently suitable for audiences of all religious inclinations.
