Cathleen enters a Catholic convent as a postulant under the tutelage of the Reverend Mother (Melissa Leo). In the convent she meets fellow nuns Sister Evelyn (Morgan Saylor), Sister Emily (Liana Liberato), and Sister Margaret (Ashley Bell), all of whom suffer from sexual urges during consecration. Meanwhile, the Reverend Mother becomes alarmed with the planned reforms of the Second Vatican Council, terrified that she would lose authority in the convent. Unable to endure the cruelty of the Mother Reverend, most of the nuns leave the convent in revolt; this draws Cathleen to question her faith.
