The 18th century. A young priest is sent by a Bishop as his vicar to investigate reports of a nun, Sister Irene, and occurrences in a cloistered convent. The young woman, enigmatic, powerfully sensuous and indomitable, is accused of scandalous heresy.
In the silence of the cloister, the encounter with Sister Irene and the testimonies of witnesses whom the priest interrogates lead him to a violent spiritual crisis and to the discovery of a shocking reality.
Based upon true events, a unique historical testimony that defies every dogma and every moral code of today.
