Synopsis

Philippines, 1971. Ferdinand Marcos's play for greater political power does not appear to affect the cloister convent of Adoration that is secluded woods outside Manila. We explore the closed off world of the convent -- riven by manias and secrets -- through the eyes of a newly arrived novice named Sister Lourdes. Shortly after her arrival, she learns her activist brother is missing. Desperate to find a way to help him, she finds ways to venture out to Manila where a terrible fate awaits her.
