The end of World War II, the Polish province after the passage of the Red Army, marked by death and violence. The complicated relationship between Mathilde, a young French Red Cross doctor and atheist, and the Benedictine Sister Superior. Two strong women, navigated by different value and belief systems, must meet halfway to help nuns raped by the Red Army. Several of them are pregnant, struggling not only with trauma, fear of motherhood, but also fear of ostracism and the threat of closure of the monastery. Film critics emphasized the beautiful, painterly frames and excellent performance of Agata Kulesza and Agata Buzek.
