In an act of civil disobedience, a group of women and their supporters organized their ordination to become Episcopal priests in 1974. The Church of Advocate in Philadelphia welcomes them, but change is no small task. The women are harassed, threatened, and banned from stepping on church property.

In this feature-length documentary film, we meet the women who succeed in building a movement that transforms and age-old institution, and challenges the very essence of patriachy within Christendom.
