The story focuses on Father Rivard, a priest banished to a dreary, poverty-stricken coal-mining town for his radical views. His life is suddenly changed by the arrival of Sister Rita, a vivacious young nun who immediately sets the town talking with her open, unorthodox behavior. But soon talk turns to vicious gossip and tragedy as the self-righteous townsfolk come to believe the love between the nun and the priest is more than just spiritual.
