RADICAL GRACE follows three fearless nuns who risk their place in the Catholic Church to follow another higher calling: social justice.
When the Vatican investigates and reprimands the sisters – citing their “radical feminism”– they become the spiritual and symbolic center of a struggle for the future of the Catholic Church. The women refuse to back down. They challenge the patriarchal system and ultimately win the hearts of the new pope and Catholics worldwide.
From their cross-country Nuns on the Bus tour, to serving those on the margins, to a continued struggle for Catholic women’s religious equality, these sisters are transforming American politics — and the Church itself.
Inspired by the sisters’ story, RADICAL GRACE is launching a social impact campaign that will help reframe faith and morality as a force for the progressive movement. Collaborating with feminist and faith-based social justice organizations, we will leverage the film to support reform within religious institutions and bridge divides to build a stronger progressive and feminist movement.
