(This film is in Romanian and features English subtitles)

Two best friends who grew up together in an orphanage are emotionally reunited after years apart. Voichita has taken religious orders while Alina wants them to both relocate to a new life of freedom in Germany. While staying together in Voichita’s remote and austere nunnery their relationship and sexuality begin to tear apart the tight-knit fabric of the sect, resulting in a terrifying act that would send a shockwave through the church.

This powerful, enigmatic and astonishingly accomplished new film from Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days) was awarded both the Best Actress and Best Screenplay awards at Cannes 2012 for its stunning depiction of a real-life tragedy that unfolded in a small religious community in Romania.
