A perky young Pentecostal missionary gets more than she bargained when she drops in on two Catholic spinsters and sparks a crisis of faith. To fight back, the sisters enlist the help of their unsuspecting parish priest, throwing a truly devilish dinner party and setting the scene for a theological smack-down of biblical proportions. A smash hit across the United States, this is a comedy you can believe in!
