Mary O'Hara was a singing star at 18, and a widow at 20. At the height of her fame she disappeared abruptly causing her family and fans to believe that she had died. Instead she had entered an enclosed order of nuns and was living in anonymity, without music and contact with the outside world. But when a derelict begins to visit the convent, he turns her life upside down.
