What does it take to be declared a Saint? Rita is a chapel keeper in a small town in Argentina. She is in constant competition with the other women in her village over who is the most virtuous, or rather, the most saintly. Rita can scrub and clean the chapel all she wants, but her efforts are in vain. That is, until she accidentally stumbles upon the opportunity of a lifetime in a dusty backroom of the chapel. She seizes her chance at sainthood, only to discover that it is not as glamorous as she expected.
