A newborn is found dead in a nun convent. A court sends psychiatrist Martha Livingstone to diagnose the mental health status and decide the fate of the young novice Agnes, who seems to not remember giving birth. The novice has but a few options: prison, a mental institution, or acquittal. A rivalry arises between mother superior Miriam Ruth and psychiatrist Livingstone, as they both wish to help the novice, by protecting her through love, and through therapy respectively.

“One can either believe in a divine power or not, but one must take a closer look at the life all around, disturbed by the effects that can lead to limit situations. Moral education, functional in the Bible also, becomes a major theme in this event performance…” (Ileana Lucaciu)
