Summary
" ... [T]his emotionally compelling film is an inspirational and uplifting portrait of a truly colorful and most unusual New York character. Brash, foul-mouthed and no-nonsense, Sister Helen Travis is not your usual saintly soul. A recovering alcoholic who lost her husband and sons to substance abuse, she single-handedly fights her own war on drugs as director of a halfway house for recovering addicts in NYC's South Bronx. Filmmakers Rob Fruchtman and Rebecca Cammisa vividly capture the complex love/hate relationsip between this tough-as-nails nun and the men who both fear her and rely on her to help them battle their own inner demons ... Sister Helen runs a tight ship in which everyone must obey her rules and the hand that writes them"--Container
