Conviction is a documentary film about three Dominican nuns who took the proliferation of nuclear arms in the country personally. These women saw it a their duty, their mission, their religious calling, to break into a missile silo in Colorado, chant, pour their own blood and get jailed for their beliefs. They were convicted and sentenced to Federal Prison for their non-violent protest at a Minuteman III missile site in Northern Colorado.
