  • The world of Sister Helen Travis has unfolded in a manner which most nun's are totally unaccustomed to. Based in New York City, Sister Helen works within the South Bronx as a councillor for recovering drug addicts. But that's really only the tip of the iceberg in the Sister Helen story, as filmmakers Rob Fruchtman and Rebecca Cammisa highlight in this absorbing documentary. Her husband and sons all passed away due to their drug habits, and Helen herself is a recovering addict. Straight-talking and unafraid of using coarse language, this miraculous survivor is not afraid to tell it like it is. Taking a "tough love" approach to her patients, Sister Helen inspires both awe and fear in the people she works with, but her impressive recovery record speaks for itself. This candid portrait of her life paints a startling picture of a strong woman capable of delivering a single-minded vision on how life should be lived, with the intimidating figure of Sister Helen lingering in the memory long after the credits have rolled.
