Played with restraint and individuality by a fine ensemble, this is a moving but provocative study of belief, duty, compassion and acceptance. – David Parkinson, Empire Magazine

Synopsis: It’s December 1945, and the Second World War is finally over. Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor, finds herself in Warsaw treating the last of the French soldiers returning from the front. One night, a nun appears at the clinic, begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent on urgent business. What Mathilde finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth. As Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, secrets rise to the surface, and modernism and science clash with faith and tradition. The nuns go about their strict daily rituals, but inside the convent’s chilly stone walls, echoing with their melancholic chants, a dangerous revolution is taking place.
