Storyline

A sort of sequel to the 1955 movie, "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing" first involved Mia Elliot, a Korean immigrant who fell in love with Paul Bradley and Dr. Jim Abbott. These interracial relationships stirred trouble for those involved. As time went on, the plot moved away from Mia (with Mia leaving town), and focused on long-suffering Laura Donnelly, a nun who eventually gave up her vows for the love of Mark Elliot.
