Le VœU

Short film, colour, approx. 8 mins, French Language

A woman living a life of seclusion as a nun in a rural convent finds that her desire for love and freedom becomes stronger than her will to remain in her religious vocation.  A tender moment shared with a fellow sister over a bowl of potato peelings catalyses an urgent desire which had previously laid dormant within her.
