feature, 35mm, 86 minutes, 1:1.85

co-produced with: Germany


The confined world of a catholic monastery, not too long after the end of the Second World War.
The chaos of life after the war loosened up and excited this enclosed community and made it less severe and strict, just like it did with life outside its walls. The hierarchy, if it still exists, has already lost some of its power. They live their lives among beliefs and doubts, passion and lethargy.
Illusions and doubts characterize this world that will be invalidated by the �justice� of another social dimension.
