Homer Smith (Sidney Poitier), an itinerant handyman, is driving through the Arizona desert when he meets five impoverished nuns. Stopping to fix their leaky farmhouse roof, Homer discovers that the Mother Superior sees him as a gift from God, and she wants him to also build their new chapel - for free! Homer soon finds himself single-handedly raising the chapel and the financing for the project.
Ralph Nelson wonderfully directed this movie gem, featuring stunning black-and-white cinematography by the great Ernest Haller (Gone with the Wind). Also starring Lilia Skala, Lisa Mann, Isa Crino, and Stanley Adams.
