Synopsis

Father Rivard is an intellectual priest who serves in a poor mining town in Washington state. He is a lonely man, and depressed about the sad lives of his parishoners, until the spirited, young nun Sister Rita arrives to teach at the parish school. Before long, Father Rivard has fallen in love with her. When Sister Rita is murdered, his feelings for her come to light and he is charged with killing her, and only his housekeeper knows the truth about the crime.
