The roads are flooded and the bridges are washed out in Pennington Gap, Va., and less generous souls are staying safely indoors, but it takes more than a little rain to keep the ladies of the Charitable Sisterhood from fulfilling their sworn mission. Bea Littleton (Sara Kessler, Hudson) is the pastor’s wife, Lorraine Jensen (Darcy McDowell, Stillwater) is the tireless mother of nine, Tina Yates (Cayla Wolpers, Fridley) is the transplanted Yankee, and Janet Murchison (Kaitlin Klemencic, St. Paul) and Riley Reynolds (Hannah Robb, River Falls) are the newest arrivals.
When these ladies meet to organize a relief effort for homeless Guatemalans, they are greeted with a small mountain of community donations. One woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure, and that pile of stuff in the Second Trinity Victory Church basement is hiding a thing or two. These five angels of mercy do their best to help the victims of global disaster, spiritual deprivation and, most of all, one another in this heartwarming comedy.
