The Passion of Augustine
Simone Beaulieu, better known as Mother Augustine, runs a convent school for girls in the Canadian province of Quebec in the 1960s. She has turned the little convent into a musical treasure where the students have won every prestigious music competition in the region. When her talented but rebellious niece joins the convent, and when the government threatens to shut down the school in favour of public education, her world is suddenly turned upside down. She and her fellow nuns are forced to confront the waves of modernity, and Mother Augustine herself must search her soul for a new calling. Can she accept her past in order to move forward? Or will she perish with tradition?
Alma is 20 year-old and she survives working on a chicken farm in the town of Canet (region of Castellón). Like people from her generation, she is inheritor of a country in crisis and a region ruined; a place that has speculated and built until the last spot of its landscape.
