The Abbey poster


The Abbey follows five ordinary women as they spend 33 days and nights living the life of an enclosed Benedictine nun. It is the first time that the outside world has entered the hidden cloisters of the Abbey. With unprecedented access, the women leave behind the hurly-burly of modern day life to embark upon a search for meaning, God and the self behind the walls of the enclosed order. They struggle with the demands of monastic life, homesickness, and their own personal demons. What can happen at the Abbey is a chance to explore life’s biggest questions, but what actually happens will intrigue you.
