At the beginning of the twenty first century, becoming a nun might seem like an extraordinary thing to do. Yet each year in Britain, a small but growing number of young women are giving up careers, boyfriends and everything they own to devote themselves entirely to God. Filmed over 6 months, this intimate documentary gives a unique insight into a rarely seen world, challenging stereotypes and exploring what convent life can still offer modern women.
