Show Synopsis:  Mistaken identities and romances are running wild in this laugh-out-loud comedy!  The Sisters of the Perpetual Sewing Convent have been making juice from their own grape vineyard and giving it to the poor for years, but two of those nuns have been secretly making wine!  The convent is in danger of closing, and they covertly sell the wine to the less savory folks in the neighborhood to keep the doors open.  Unfortunately, Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, are hot on their trail.  The pair goes undercover as a nun and priest, but their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down.  And let’s not forget Mother Superior is a teetotaler and must not find out about their operation!  Wine and secrets are spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent.
