Mathilde, a Red Cross doctor stationed in Poland shortly after World War II, is urgently called to a Benedictine convent, where she learns that several nuns are on the verge of giving birth after having been raped by Soviet soldiers. Deciding to go against Red Cross protocol and the wishes of a fanatical Mother Superior, she fights to save the young women and their babies.

Based on true events, this gripping period piece convincingly recreates a particularly dark pass in modern history, while evoking the plight of every innocent caught in the crossfire between rampaging armies and dogmatic beliefs.

“Bolstered by striking imagery from cinematographer Caroline Champetier."— IndieWire

"An emotionally involving film, with scenes as beautiful as oil paintings." — Time Out

.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED THERE WILL BE ANOTHER FILM PROJECTION AT 7:30.
I WILL NOT BE STAYING FOR THE SECOND FILM BUT YOU CAN FIND INFORMATION ABOUT IT ON THE FIAF WEBSITE.
