As a precocious 8 year old, Gina is determined to piece together a family for herself. She finally makes a friend out of Ronnie Renee, the newest student at the St. Agnes School For Girls. After Ronnie's mom leaves town, Gina begs Father Gerard to take Ronnie in. Father Gerard reluctantly agrees. Ronnie comes to live with Gina and Father Gerard and Gina feels as if the family she has always longed for is finally coming together.

Unfortunately, Gina's piecemeal family is unravelling fast. Sister Catherine begins to question her calling and contemplates leaving St. Agnes. And the arrival of Father Giovanni brings about veiled accusations concerning Father Gerard's relationship with Gina.
