Set in the common room of a mission station in a Far Eastern Country in the year 1950, a revolution has taken place and 'The General' is a leader of the province. The nuns, their priest and local English residents are ordered to leave, or they will be shot.
Matters are complicated by the arrival of Father Schiller, who has been wrecked by torture and Reverend Mother agrees to hide him.
Internal tensions add to the complexities of the situation and lead to its dramatic resolution.
