Set in the 1960s, Brides of Christ tells the story of a group of nuns in a fictitious inner city convent school in Sydney during a time of radical upheaval in society and in the Catholic Church. In the era of Vietnam and the Rolling Stones, established disciplines and rites are questioned in a collision between an ancient institution and the modern world. The series shows nuns as highly spirited questioning women, with sexual feelings and very human failings.
