7:20-8 Q +A
This funny, joyful and poignant documentary film follows Sister Simone’s personal journey into the public eye as she discovers her calling, builds a bold new movement, and navigates the complicated terrain between faith and politics.
Follow along as these nuns challenge two of the world’s largest institutions – the Catholic church and the U.S. government – to reclaim their core values.
Confronting our deep national issues of poverty, health care, and immigration, Simone and her sisters view faith as a powerful force for justice, compassion and the common good.
Can our democracy be saved, and will we realize the promise of our constitution and be “we the people” of the United States?
