Focusing on the occurrences that brought a nun in as the leader of a small Catholic parish in upstate New York, "A Calling" chronicles the personal stories of several individuals that were engaged in this transformation, and how they and their community evolved throughout the process. As the church works to piece together this new vision, the women discover the parallels between their lives and those of the women religious of the church that is rooted in their feminist core. As they tell their story, they re-affirm their investment in the creative path they took, offering an intimate and humanizing look into their world.
