Agnes of God is the tale of three women, all in need of a miracle, who are drawn together by the death of a child. When Dr. Martha Livingstone (Dawn Erin), a disillusioned ex-Catholic psychiatrist, is summoned to a convent and meets Sister Agnes (Laura Ray), a young novitiate accused of murdering her newborn, she is deeply moved by the young nun’s spiritual purity. Determined to circumvent the over-protective Mother Superior (Jennifer Underwood), Dr. Livingstone struggles to unearth the truth about the conception, birth and death of Agnes’s child. Both fight desperately to save Agnes forcing all three women to re-examine the meaning of faith, identity, and the power of love and to find the miracle each one of them needs.
