Plot Summary
A Buffalo, N.Y., neighborhood receives a mysterious gift from the heavens: hundreds of crisp $20 bills. Young Theresa doesn't have much trouble convincing her family that the money is a financial windfall from God. Now, 30 years later, Theresa (Ursula Burton), who's become a nun, has an epiphany that the money must be returned. It's up to Theresa to persuade her family -- a motley collection of small-time crooks and gamblers -- that repaying the heaven-sent loan is the right thing to do.

    Colorful and cute. It would be better if it weren't quite so sitcommy and if it didn't outlast its ideas. show more

    Hokey, overstuffed plot and a messily hand-stitched, often illogical script. show more
