Four women are given into the custody of the Magdalene sisterhood asylum to correct their sinful behavior: Crispina and Rose have given birth to a premarital child, Margaret got raped by her cousin and the orphan Bernadette had been repeatedly caught flirting with the boys. All have to work in a laundry under the strict supervision of the nuns, who break their wills through sadistic punishment.
Love can drive you crazy. To the outside world Paul and Leila have a ‘happy’ family. A nice house, two nice kids, and most importantly they have each other. That’s the problem. Both are in love – one is insane. Paul thinks he’s losing his mind – but he has more to lose than that. One couple; one love; one tragedy.
