A papal commission is sent to examine whether or not, Therese Martin, a young Carmelite nun, is deserving of the designation of 'heroic'. Five of their witnesses have failed to recognise in her anything more exalted than a gentle acceptance of suffering. One member of the commission is troubled by these statements and recalls the five to rehear their accounts and this forms the core of the play.
