Sister Mary Katherine, a young American nun, is working in a small town in the Highlands of Peru in 1964. One day she slips away from the convent with no money and no destination. Disoriented in a culture not her own and afraid of her attraction to an Irish priest with whom she is working, she spends eight days on the run. Her journey of memory and desire leads her to a startling conclusion.
