Synopsis:

Poland, 1962. Anna is a novice, an orphan brought up by nuns in the convent. She has to see Wanda, the only living relative, before she takes her vows. Wanda tells Anna that Anna is Jewish. Both women start a journey not only to discover not only their family's tragic story, but who they really are and where they belong. They question their religions and ideas they believed in.
