Gianfranco Mingozzi's film, first released in 1974, follows Flavia (Florinda Bolkan), a Catholic woman coerced by her religious father to join a convent. Far from being pious and peaceful, however, the order teems with cruel and fanatical nuns who make Flavia's life a living hell. Her only respite is escape, but she's soon found and returned to her misery. This time, though, she won't take her punishment without a fight ... a bloody one at that.
