Summary
This compelling documentary reveals life behind the cloistered walls of a 150-year-old monastery, as it follows the twelve elderly nuns preparing to face the outside world for the first time in their adult lives. Breaking Silence: The Story of the Sisters at Desales Heights examines the effects on the members of this unusual community as they respond to pressures from the world around them. A rare and intimate insight into a way of life that may soon be gone forever, the film raises important questions about the changing role of women in society and what happens to those whose roles are no longer valued.
