Plot Summary
Many years have passed since nomadic handyman Homer (Billy Dee Williams) helped to build a chapel for a group of nuns back home, but when he returns, it's as if he never left. Head nun Maria (Maria Schell) is still a formidable force and wastes no time in insisting that Homer now build a bell tower and an orphanage since, by her reckoning, he didn't finish the chapel -- not completely. So, with the help of the nuns and the gorgeous Janet Owens (Fay Hauser), Homer makes a difference once again.
