What do you do with a problem like Maria, a novice nun who just doesn't quiet fit in the day-to-day life at the nunnery? Well you bundle her up and send her off to be a nanny to a stuffed-shirt Baron and his unruly seven children of course! Maria quickly takes the children in hand, teaching them to sing and act like children instead of the young soldiers the Baron wants them to be. Add in memorable songs, a romantic love story, and a harrowing escape from Nazis, and you have one of the most memorable movie musicals of all time.
