An actress is about to play the part of Marianna Alcoforado, a young nun from the 17th-century Franciscan convent of Beja, who was writing fiery letters to her French lover, the officer Chamilly, who came to fight the Spaniards during the war of independence from Portugal. The actress, being the perfect embodiement of Marianna, will drive us to a journey beyond time and imagination. Adapted from the book Letters of a Portuguese Nun, first published anonymously by Claude Barbin in Paris in 1669, a work believed by most scholars to be written by Gabriel-Joseph de La Vergne, comte de Guilleragues. From the start, the passionate letters, in book form, were a European publishing sensation, with five editions in the collection's first year, followed by more than forty editions throughout the 17th century.
