Storyline

A nun, dreaming in a convent cell, her rosary between her fingers, thinks of a day now passed, when she and her boy lover roamed the fields. Throughout this picture the beautiful words of the world-famous "Rosary" are introduced at appropriate intervals. While on the lake, she drops her necklace into the water and pleads with the boy to get it. He says he cannot swim; she accuses him of cowardice and he dives. But he does not come to the surface of the water, and in answer to her cries the peasants recover his lifeless body, which is laid reverently upon the bank of the stream. The girl flings herself on her knees beside him and finds the necklace clasped in his hand. After visiting the boy's grave, the girl goes to the convent, knocks upon the gate and is admitted. Time passes and alone with her rosary, she sees this dream each time she tells the beads, "I kiss each bead and strive at last to learn to kiss the cross." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A delicate, tender story
24 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The love story of a nun, with the words of the famous song printed verse by verse. The girl was wooed by her lover in charming pastoral scenes. They stand on a bridge and she commands him to jump into the water. He does so and is drowned. Her days thereafter arc filled with regret. A delicate, tender story, quite well presented. - The Moving Picture World, July 19, 1913
