Plot Summary

It is 1969. The twenty-seven year old Father Louis lives in a convent and his priesthood is a calling for him. When, however, his friend and fellow priest Daniel gets a relationship with a woman, Louis also questions his celibate existence. Why can not he maintain an intimate relationship with another person? Through a series of events, Louis revolts against the Catholic Church and in 1973 he leaves the monastery. Coincidence brings him into contact with Daikha, a woman who gets to know him in love. In 1999 the short relationship with Daikha was virtually forgotten. Louis has turned his back on the church and lives with his childhood love Liliane. Then he receives a message that will dramatically change his life for the third time.
