Sister Angela's Girls 2
Synopsis

New encounters are in store for Sister Angela. The convent has now become an extended family, its doors always open to whoever needs their help. Sister Angela doesn’t perform miracles, but she is always there to lend an ear and listen.

Among the new guests to the convent is Guido Corsi, a lawyer who abandoned his career after committing a serious judicial error. Now even his personal life is in a disastrous state after the end of what seemed like the “perfect” marriage.
He agrees to become a tutor for the new University residence at the convent only to boost his career, but Sister Angela has entrusted him with Davide, the child who was partially the cause of his divorce and who has been orphaned. Guido’s ex-wife entrusted the nun with the child right before she died...

To make things even worse for Guido, a hurricane arrives by the name of Azzurra, a girl who is over the top, whimsical, moody, in search of the ideal man… and who needs to support herself by working as Davide’s nanny. Azzurra is mix of untidiness, ignorance and obstinacy all rolled into one. Guido, instead, is rational, strict and moralistic… thanks to Davide, Guido and Azzurra may just discover they have more in common than they thought.

Among our new guests there is also the young attorney Nina who is also a cynic and a perfectionist. As a child, she witnessed the ruin of her family at the hands of an unscrupulous businessman. Nina has come to believe the only person she can count on is herself and, even though she’ll never admit it (because that would be the same as admitting she is still suffering), she decided to become a lawyer in order to immediately deliver justice.

Then there’s Chiara, the dean of the university’s daughter. She is working as an intern in the same law office as Nina, who thinks Chiara is only there on connections and tries to find any excuse to make things difficult for her. The truth is, Chiara is bright and determined. During one of the cases she is working on, she makes contact with a story full of pain and hope. It marks the beginning of a journey that leads her to desire something other than the future she had imagined with her boyfriend Riccardo. Sister Angela will be the one to help her make a difficult choice, a choice that may change her life forever.

Margherita is still at the convent, now working at a hospital directly with the sick. This is where she first meets Dr. Limbiati, a fascinating doctor who we discover holds a secret, and then Emilio, the athlete she is taking care of…

The central theme of every episode is a problem linked to one of these guests. The partnership between Guido’s rationality and Sister Angela’s intuition will prove precious in helping the others disentangle themselves from the complicated challenge of growing up and becoming adults.
