Inside a century-old row house in Brooklyn, renegade Sister Evelyn and her fellow nuns preside over a safe haven for the abused and abandoned. Despite her tough exterior, Evelyn is shaken to hear that Mercy House will be investigated by Bishop Hawkins, a man with whom she shares a dark history. In order to protect everything they've built, the nuns must conceal many of their methods, which are forbidden by the church. Beginning to understand what mercy really means, Evelyn is bolstered by the residents of the shelter—Lucia, Mei-Li, Desiree, Esther, and Katrina—all scarred by their interactions by men, yet eager to rebuild their lives.
