How does it feel when your brother, someone you felt to be the de
arest, brightest and most important person in the world, suddenly decides to join an ultraconservative Catholic religious order? Whilst the two siblings had spent time at Christian summer camps – he at the Legionarios and she with the Consagradas – the members of both orders had always seemed rather odd to them. Her brother swore he would never join the Legionaries and that it didn’t interest him at all. Why did he break this pact, what happened to him? Filmmaker Zita Erffa’s brother László has spent the past eight years in a monastery in Connecticut. Eight years during which they have barely had any contact since, although they were able to correspond, visits were only allowed once a year. In 2015, in a surprising move, the new head of the order grants the filmmaker permission to follow her brother with her camera for two weeks. The encounter that Zita has longed for yet which fills her with trepidation, comes to pass. Finally, she is able to have the conversations she should have had eight years ago.
