In eighteenth-century France a girl is forced against her will to take vows as a nun. Three superior mothers treat her in radically different ways, ranging from maternal concern to sadistic persecution to lesbian desire. Suzanne's virtue brings disaster to everyone in this faithful adaptation of a bitter attack on religious abuses by the Enligthtenment philosopher Denis Diderot.
