Brian and Charlie are small time crooks looking for a way out. Their life of petty crime is becoming increasingly hazardous and they just want to go straight. When a large sum of money, intended for their homicidal, gangland boss, accidentally falls into their hands, Charlie and Brian see it as a getaway. But things don’t go to plan and they end up having to take sanctuary in a convent for young girls, disguising themselves as nuns. With psychotic Triads, the police, girlfriends and the criminal underworld on their trail, it’ll be more than just their bad habits they’ll have to be keeping an eye on.
