The action takes place in the common room of a mission station
in an eastern country in the year 1950.
It is a battle of wits between the sisters of the mission and
the evil Captain Lee, who serves in the revolutionary army and
seeks to arrest the mission's doctor / priest, Father Schiller.
Will Captain Lee succeed or will the resolute reverend mother
help Schiller to escape?
All appears lost when a letter from the general seems to offer a
way out - but at what cost?
