The Red Skirt

2 June 2011 No Comment

A nine-year-old girl, impressionistic and dreamy, feels God has called to her through the voice of a missionary who speaks to her Catholic school class.

Poignant and insightful, The Red Skirt gives an unflinching glimpse of one woman’s internal, and decidedly human, struggle to leave behind the young, fearful girl who could not shake the words of the missionary.

Taking the name of Sister Marie Petra, she begins to grow with guidance from her new family of “sisters;” at times dysfunctional, but always loving and supportive at their core. She only hopes that she can depend upon their compassion and understanding when she tells the order she’s leaving…forever.
