Description: 18th Century Italy. Betrothed at birth to the heir of an aristocratic clan, Carmela (Inferno’s Eleonora Giorgi) rebels against the heartless ambition of her family, who packs the headstrong girl off to a secluded convent to avoid the scandal. Victimized and humiliated by the nuns, Carmela finds herself a pawn in a test of wills between the forbidding Mother Superior (Suzy Kendell, from The Bird With The Crystal Plumage) and the manipulative Sister Elisabetta (Cat O’Nine Tails’ Catherine Spaak), who strips off her habit after vespers to host decadent midnight parties. Her body ravaged and her soul crushed, Carmela finds joy in the arms of her former lover, Giuliano… whose clandestine nighttime visits to the convent drive the repressed sisterhood into a murderous frenzy.
