The story takes place in a convent over one day, intensifying as it unravels. At the operas opening, our main character Sister Angelica claims, during a discussion among the nuns, to have no desires, but she lies. She has a hidden, burning desire to see her illegitimate son that was taken from her seven years ago, and whom she has thought of every day. So when her unforgiving aunt, the Princess, pays a visit to the convent and is forced to tell Angelica that her son tragically died two years previously, she is plunged into suicidal delirium. She hears her son calling to her she must go to meet him but in taking her own life, she is committing a sin. Will she be redeemed, re-united, and finally accepted for who she is?
