Abstract:

Sister Bernie D'Amato doesn't look like a nun. In an oversize Bob Marley T-shirt, she smokes pot, befriends local gangs and passes out condoms to the Ukrainian prostitutes who cruise around their New Jersey slum. When the women's shelter Bernie runs comes under threat from a property developer, she vows to fight back, and recruits a teenage X-Factor wannabe and an ageing ex-nun to help. But as pressure mounts on the shelter to take their pay-out and close down, tensions start to mount in a community struggling to survive.
