Poland, 1945. Mathilde, a young French doctor with the Red Cross, is on a mission to help World War II survivors. When a nun seeks for her help, she is brought to a convent where several pregnant sisters are concealed from past barbaries of the Soviet soldiers. Unable to reconcile their faith with their pregnancy, the nuns turn to Mathilde who becomes their only hope.
