Long before newly minted Pope Francis made a point of championing the less fortunate, nuns were on the front lines after Vatican II tasked them with taking an active role in their service. "Band of Sisters" finally gives voice to their too-little-told story, examining the forward-thinking, inspiring women who brought the Catholic sisterhood into the modern era. "Band of Sisters" challenges us to ask what's truly important in life through powerful portraits of women who chose to serve others over themselves, with an indefatigable sense of righteousness in the face of social injustice.
