Amid the swirl of controversy surrounding Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ comes this timely portrait of Sister Rose Thering, a nun who has made the battle against anti-Semitism her life's work. Rose challenged the doctrine blaming Jews for the death of Jesus, took a leading role in Vatican II, and carries on her fight today.
