Written by Tom Smith, directed by Barbara Cox.
Two nuns secretly make wine to keep the convent's doors open, but Paul and Sally, a pair of formerly affianced reporters, are hot on their trail. They go undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.
