A new Communist government has taken over and there has been persecution of Nuns and Priests throughout the province. A group of five Irish Nuns run a local Mission Station for orphaned children and their resident Priest, a German national, has been captured and tortured by the Communist regime. The Priest manages to escape and a group of soldiers are sent to the Mission because in case he makes his way back.
