The premise-a misfit nun who comes to the aid of a needy family-is compelling and. The script is highly imaginative-a floating nun, a Saint in the form of a dog and perverted lingerie buyers-all of this makes for a really original story and takes the audience somewhere it hasn't gone before. There is some good humor in this script. Some of the best humor comes from the Halcyon Catalog Center, such as this interaction between Dan and his boss, Natalie, Natalie] "Why, those are black magazines? Why are you only selling black magazines? You're not talking black to those people, are you?" Dan] "I dunno. Sometimes I say, Yo. Is that black, Natalie?"

Maybe the most charming aspect of this story though, is its heart. One feels the family really cares for one another, despite their failings and shortcomings.
-Gordy Hoffman, BlueCat Screenplay Competition

Sister Simplicity, a recalcitrant and menopausal nun wakes up one morning, and is visited by a neurotic Archangel, St. Raphael, (in the form of a dog) who warns her that "she is on a short leash," for she needs to amend her worldly life by Christmas.

Misinterpreting her Mother Superior's intentions she believes she is the prize in the convent's raffle, and shows up at the dysfunctional Murdoch family's home (holder of the winning ticket) exclaiming she is first prize. The "winners," Rachel and Dan Murdoch are perplexed at receiving a "mail order" nun whom they view as just another mouth to feed.

Sister's task is enormous, for she must straighten out, Jason, a preteen who is up to his elbows in mischief; reel in the rambunctious daughter, Sherry, who has started to experiment precariously with "boys." But her heavy cross liesahead, rescuing; Dan and Rachel, the parents who are in trouble when Dan uncovers a gang of inept bank thieves' money which they lost during the course of a failed robbery.
