| At the crossroads....of a spiritual crisis
In this very unusual film, Rosanna Schiaffino is a young Belgian nun who undergoes a horrific trauma when the sisters of her order are savagely attacked and murdered by savages. She herself is raped and left for dead, the only survivor. When she is found to be pregnant, her family takes an unsympathetic, selfish and callous view of her plight. The church representatives advise her in a coldly remote, didactic and impersonal manner of her only two choices. A doctor who loves her wants to marry her, but she is uncomfortable with the idea of his self-sacrifice to help with what is her burden. After a long period of depression, listlessness, and prayer she comes to some deep realizations and makes her decision. Viewers will not be unmoved when this meek young woman heroically takes charge of her own life and future.
