A French Red Cross Doctor, Mathilde Beaulieu, visits a Polish convent and discovers many of the nuns have become pregnant by Stalin’s troops stationed nearby. Mathilde and her medical colleagues, who have little regard for the Polish Catholic Church, try to help the sisters – a difficult task in an atmosphere of guilt and shame.
