Short description

La religieuse


Forced to take the veil, an illegitimate girl named Suzanne must dedicate her life to Jesus. By the will of the mother superior who tries to convince her of the merits of this decision, even if it has been forced on her, she submits to bullying, humiliation and abuse from the day she officially asks to leave. After time spent sheltered by a nun who loves her so much that she tries to initiate her into Sapphism, Suzanne suffocates in the habit and veil imposed on her. But leaving the convent is not a simple thing and the decision to let her go may be delegated all the way to the pope, if necessary. Helped by a lawyer, Suzanne manages to escape, finding the freedom she has dreamed of for so long and the father she never knew.
