A story of the passion between a nun and God, her "divine spouse," Jean-Daniel Lafonds film paints an astonishing portrait of Marie de lIncarnation, a mid-seventeenth-century mystic who abandoned her son and left France to build a convent in Canada, where she became the first female writer in New France. A religious adventure story, the film shows actress Marie Tifo seeking to inhabit this unusual role. Using a script by Jean-Daniel Lafond, she tackles the nuns incandescent writing and her candid letters to her son. The documentary fuses actress and role, past and present and takes us on a truly extraordinary historical and artistic journey.
