Anthony Corlan (aka Anthony Higgins) · Raika Juri · Laura
a woman forced to live the life of a nun by her father. After witnessing
injustices and questioning her own faith, she flees the convent in search
of a better life. Her taste of freedom beyond the confines of the convent
walls is cut short and she is soon recaptured, tortured and whipped for
her defiance of the church. Befriending Sister Agathe, who shares her
hatred of men, Flavia plots a rebellion. A bloody, violent confrontation
ensues as she leads Muslim warriors to attack, rape and murder her friends
in the convent. From a confused nun questioning her faith, to a violent
dominating leader, Flavia's taste of absolute power comes at a dear price.
