When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she’s thrown into protective custody in the one place she’d never be spotted – a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover.
