Sisters Bertrille and Jacqueline brainstorm about how to get the information to her. Sister Bertrille asks Carlos if he would fly his private plane to St. Thomas, but he refuses. So Sister Bertrille takes matters into her own hands and flies there herself. En route, she gets lost and the wind is dying so she's forced to make an emergency landing on a small island. On the island, Talc and his band of gangsters - Moon, Ben, Joe and Angie - are discussing business matters, namely how to dismiss of their partners, the Schwimmer brothers, when Talc sees Sister Bertrille land. He thinks she is a saint who has come to help him redeem his ways. Because of Talc's odd behavior, Moon and Ben think he's gone crazy and figure they'll support the Schwimmers, while Joe and Angie will follow Talc in whatever he wants to do. Meanwhile, Sister Bertrille has accidentally dropped the Reverend Mother's notes and mistakenly picked up some of Talc's notes. When contract killer Louie LaRue lands on the island, Moon and Ben take off with him to contact the Schwimmers, stranding Talc, Joe, Angie and Sister Bertrille. Before those on the plane can bring back the Schwimmers to the island to dispose of Talc and the others, Sister Bertrille manages to fly off with Talc's papers. As she does, Talc, Joe, Angie, and Moon, Ben, Louie and the Schwimmer Brothers in the plane all see Sister Bertrille fly. Like Talc, they all now believe she's a saint sent to help them redeem their ways. The pilot too is so overwhelmed, that he crashes the plane. When Sister Bertrille returns to the convent and sees that she has incriminating evidence of Talc's, the federal authorities take her back to the island, expecting a tense stand off with Talc and the Schwimmers. Instead, Talc and everyone on the island surrender to their new saint. Written by Huggo See less
