In cold Poland of winter 1945, Mathilde Beaulieu, a Red Cross doctor, is taking care of the French soldiers wounded in combat during WWII. A young Benedictine sister comes to her asking for help but Mathilde kicks her out claiming: “only French people here”. However, she changes her mind when she sees the girl praying in the snow. She follows her through the Polish countryside to reach the convent, where 25 nuns are cloistered. She then has to face an incredible situation: most of the nuns have been raped by Soviet soldiers. Seven are now pregnant and about to go into labour. Will the sisters keep faith despite their broken vow of chastity?
