April in Love

April in Love

Avril is a 21-year-old novice who was abandoned at birth in front of an isolated convent in the heart of the mountains. She was raised there by the ”Trappistines of the Strict Observance“. Mother Marie-Joseph tells her it is time for her to take her perpetual vows. Avril must make a retreat for two weeks in the Saint Chapel, apart from the convent. But Sister Bernadette reveals a secret to Avril: she was not abandoned by herself; there was also a boy – her twin brother, whom the abbess decided to entrust to an orphanage. This revelation will overturn the destiny of the young novice and lead her, by her encounters, to discover a world she never imagined, on the path to another truth, the truth of carnal temptations.
