Content warnings: sexism, homophobia, Vatican II Catholic dogma

At an all-girls Catholic School in East New York, the students of Our Lady of Sorrows are staging an ambitious adaptation of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. As the actors debate the sins of Shakespeare's characters, they question the fundamental tenets of Catholic doctrine, as well as the Church's stance on sexuality, womanhood, and purity. A controversial draft of the play attracts the attention of the nuns and soon the production is in jeopardy. As the girls grapple with faith, love, and adolescence, they find themselves facing off against an oppressive institution.
