Summary, etc.:
A parish priest Father O'Malley is sent to revive a financially ailing parochial school and immediately finds himself at odds with no-nonsense Sister Benedict on how to educate the children. Beyond their delightful battle of wits lies a bigger problem-the skinflint businessman next door wants St. Mary's condemned, so he can build a parking lot for his employees. Only a miracle can save St. Mary's.
