After a cathedral bell ringer passes away, his spot on the bell ringing choir is up for grabs. Nancy believes she is the only real choice to take his spot, but Leanne has other ideas. As the competition heats up, the women find themselves vying for the spot in ways they never thought they would. Rung is a dark comedy about ambition, faith, and desire.
