Synopsis

Agnes, Lucy and Cecilia. Three teenage girls, each an embodiment of a martyred saint.

Three girls who have sacrificed everything for their belief in Sebastian, the boy who stole their hearts. Now that Lucy has paid the ultimate price, Cecilia and Agnes must find faith in their own destinies.

Now they are icons, beloved and infamous. As the world turns against them and forces try to undermine them, will they be able to hold on to what they believe is true?

Will they survive the final test? And what awaits them: eternal shame or eternal fame?

A dark, contemporary rock 'n' roll retelling of three famous female martyrs - Agnes, Cecilia and Lucy - and their transformation from street deliquents to soul models - set against the backdrop of Brooklyn, New York.
