To fulfill her mother’s expectations, shy and sensitive 16-year-old Lucija enters the local Catholic high school choir. In the spring, the conductor takes the girls for a weekend of intensive rehearsals to the convent of the Ursuline Sisters in Cividale. At that time the convent is in the process of renovation by a group of Italian workers. An outgoing third-grader Ana-Marija notices Lucija’s interest in the attractive dark-eyed worker and they decide to play a trick on him. After an unfortunate first orgasm, deep feelings of shame overwhelm Lucija, and the struggle with guilt about her impulses begins. During a family dinner unexpected secrets are revealed.
