An engaging & compelling documentary.
27 May 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this documentary the other night and found it to be a very interesting, engaging and compelling story about Robina Courtin, a former Catholic feminist from Australia who is now a Buddhist monk currently working with inmates in the USA, both on & off of death row. (Not all of the inmates she visits are Buddhist.) Since few Americans understand Buddhism (or any other non-Christian religion for that matter) it is likely that few Americans will be interested in watching it; but I highly recommend it.

The documentary includes flashbacks and discussions with Robina's friends who knew her long before she became a Buddhist nun.
