Sisterhood is powerful. Before leaving for a mission in Africa, Runa, a nun, visits her sister three years after entering the convent when her sister stole Runa's boyfriend. Runa comes to forgive and to help her sister make enough money buying and selling some convent property so she can marry. The old boyfriend has new women in his life, but he and the sister tell Runa they're a couple in order to keep the property deal. To make even more money, Runa's sister wheedles large gifts from various men she's stringing along. There are flashbacks to Runa's sexual initiation at the convent. Has this taught meekness to Runa?

This is the only the second film I have seen by Masaru Konuma, so I have no idea of whether or not it is one of his best. It was certainly better than XX: Utsukushiki karyuudo (Beautiful Hunter).
One goes into a nunsploitation film expecting a good bit of nun-sex, and there was some in the beginning, including a rape by the rector, and one nun on nun incident, but that wasn't what this movie was all about.
It was a story of revenge, and double crossing - maybe even triple-crossing. Runa was out to get back at her fiancé and sister for an act of betrayal. She managed an elaborate con to do it. In the middle, sis is doing a bit of conning of her own that results in a huge payback by the men she duped. Those doing the conning with Runa get conned in the end in a delicious twist that has you rooting.
As to the sex, I can imagine there is another film out there called "Cloistered Nun: Runa's Obsession," as the sex was just short of XXX. It just seems that judicious editing was made to a porn film.
Nun-sex, lesbian sex, rape, and gang bangs, and an unusual form of Japanese calligraphy: this film has it all, but it had a great story, too.
