This is a documentary about a young Swedish woman´s choice to live her life for God alone. The convent made a unique exception to its strict regulations by allowing Maud Nycander to meet with and interview Marta both before and after her five-year postulant period.
The Carmelite convent in Glumslöv in the south of Sweden is normally closed to outsiders.
Documentary filmmaker Maud Nycander followed Marta and her family for ten years.
