The controversial
Euro-cult classic finally comes to DVD in this exciting re-mastered uncensored

Florinda Bolkan stars as
Flavia, a woman forced to live the life of a nun by her demanding father. After
witnessing injustices and questioning her own faith, she flees the convent in
search of a better life. Her taste of freedom beyond the confined of the convent
walls is cut short and she is soon recaptured, tortured and whipped for her
defiance of the church. Befriending Sister Agatha, who shares her hatred of men,
Flavia plots a rebellion. A bloody, violent confrontation ensues as she leads
Muslim warriors to attack, rape and murder her friends in the convent. >From a
confused nun questioning her faith, to a violent dominating leader, Flavia’s
taste of absolute power comes at a dear price.
