A religious order in the heart of Melbourne moves from St Francis monastery into a pub during renovations. Father Donald Cave, however, moves to his former home to write a book on the order’s founder, while Brother Bernard, at the age of 100, is too old to stay at the pub and must be cared for elsewhere. Father Ken Boland, in charge of the building works, vents his opposition to the renovations. Brother Gerard Develin parts with his pet budgie for the period of construction and Father Gonzalo Munoz shows signs of disillusionment with the church. How will Don, at 71 years of age, cope without his usual support? Will Gonzalo stay at St Francis? Will the budgie survive?.
