Description: Sister Helen is not your average nun. In fact, there is nothing average about this story. After the death of her husband and two sons, Helen got herself sober and joined the Benedictine order of nuns. Though in her late sixties, she opened a private home for recovering addicts and alcoholics in the South Bronx, where she lives, along with twenty-one men. To live there, they must obey her rules, including on-demand urine samples, adhere to strict curfews, participate in community service, and attend house meetings at her discretion--no ifs, ands, or buts. Call it tough love. The men respect and fear her--for she is one tough lady. Documentarians Rob Fruchtman & Rebecca Cammisa lived at the Center for months to get the most in-depth possible account of life there.
