From the director of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days comes a harrowing, visually stunning tale inspired by a case of alleged demonic possession. At a remote monastery watched over by an austere priest, a young woman (newcomer Cristina Flutur, who shared Cannes’ Best Actress award with co-star Cosmina Stratan), tries to talk her friend into leaving her training as a nun. But unable to convince her, the visitor decides to stay on a while, upsetting the order’s delicate balance of power.

"Devastating... one of the year’s masterpieces... builds with unstoppable momentum."
