Synopsis:
Christopher Eccleston, Pete Postlethwaite and Toyah Willcox star in this sensual tale of religious conflict, in which a young girl's transcendental vision threatens to upset the foundations of her community. Inspired by records of the real Anchoress of Shere who was voluntarily walled up in a tiny cell adjoining a church, the film vividly evokes life in a remote Medieval village and explores the gulf between patriarchal power and female rebellion.
