Synopsis

1792. Isolated in the mountains, far from the epicentre of the French Revolution, the monastery of young monk Gabriel is requisitioned to serve as barracks by the revolutionary troops and the silent young woman who accompanies them: Marianne. The new ideas Gabriel discovers through the forced cohabitation between monks and soldiers don’t leave him indifferent.
