Sister Angela's Girls 3
Synopsis

Twenty new and exciting episodes in the company of Sister Angela, who is anything but your usual nun. She’s rude, bizarre and imperfect. She’s a woman full of shortcomings, but an irreplaceable mother for the girls at the convent, the home to an extended and very active family that Sister Angela happily and lovingly watches over .

This season brings some news, they have moved to the city of Fabriano in the Marche and new guests have arrived at the convent:

Rosa- a beautiful yet ambiguous girl who upsets the balance in the convent by getting dangerously close to Guido and making Azzurra jealous. It’s just a shame the two girls have yet to learn they are sisters…

Achille- a wealthy old wheel-chair bound man who pretends to be a benefactor when he is actually Davide’s grandfather and wants to take his grandson from the convent...

Alice- an independent, nonconformist fifteen year old student who reluctantly becomes a part of the “family”.

Dario- Achille’s charming stepson who ruthlessly woos Azzurra and holds all the right cards to win her over…

Gregorio- a young professor with a mysterious past, who makes Nina’s heart pound…

Carlo- Margherita’s colleague, who competes against her for a research position in the hospital…and maybe something even more.

What’s more, Rosa, a beautiful but ambiguous girl, arrives on the scene and risks upsetting the balance of this “family” that has just reunited, generating jealousy and suspicion.

Ep.2: “Sisters”

Sister Angela finds out Rosa and Azzurra are sisters, but given that the two girls despise each other, she decides to keep this disturbing news quiet for the meantime. Meanwhile, she has to deal with Achille, the mysterious wheelchair-bound benefactor who has come to the convent, concealing his real purpose for being there- he’s Davide’s grandfather and wants to take him away. Although it is not enticing, Nina finds a new job as a teacher at the same high school Sister Angela teaches at. Margherita enjoys her pregnancy, unsuspecting of the threat that awaits her.
