One lonely Christmas morning, Kristin Ohlson wandered into a downtown Cleveland church for mass. Once there, she was moved by the traditions of her childhood, but more than that, her curiosity was captured by a group of cloistered nuns. They were the Poor Clares - a tiny, threadbare congregation of elderly nuns with one mission; to pray day and night for the sorrows of the world. As Ohlson, a longtime skeptic, opens up to the Poor Clares, she opens herself to the possibility of the sacred. The result is a personal journey as well as a poignant reflection on the power of church and faith.
