A group of British nuns are dispatched to a remote Himalayan community to set up a school and clinic. But this exotic culture where the winds blow ceaselessly, nature is obscenely beautiful and Dean, a British agent, is a troubling male force, has a strange effect on the sisters. Tensions arise, as do temptations of both spirit and body that are far removed from the strict religious life they were accustomed to in England. Spirituality, sexuality and madness clash in high-intensity colour by Jack Cardiff.
