Synopsis: In an isolated Orthodox convent in Romania, Alina (Cristina Flutur) has been reunited with her childhood friend Voichita (Cosmina Stratan) after spending several years in Germany. Alina wants to leave and go to back Germany, and wants Voichita, a novice nun, to go with her. But Voichita has found refuge in faith and a family in the nuns and their priest (Valeriu Andriuta) and refuses. When Alina challenges the priest in an attempt to win back Voichita’s affection, she is suspected of being possessed. Mungiu based his gripping drama on a case of alleged demonic possession that occurred in a Romanian monastery in 2005.
