Synopsis: The story takes place in 1965 in a small convent in rural Quebec against the backdrop of changes in the public school system that may force the convent to close its doors. One of the nuns, Mother Augustine, pours all her passion and talent into teaching music to young women of all socio-economic backgrounds. Among them, her “flower-child” rebellious niece, a piano prodigy, is only one of her many challenges.
