The sisters come back to Delores’s show to get her back as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of students in their parochial school which is doomed for closure. One of the girls is forbidden to sing by her mother, although the choir has made it to the state championship.

Sister Act 2: Back in the HabitDirected byBill Duke
Movies based around song and dance can be as derivative and contrived as they like as long as the melodies and choreography are on point. Songs here cause goosebumps, and there is some sisterly magical ingredient (despite some farcical scenes involving the monks and a rote rags-to-riches narrative) where a socialist message and Whoopi and Lauryn Hill at their finest, carry this film beyond its clichés. Love it.
