Set in a sun-dappled village in Malta in the 1980s, Natascha McElhone gives a career-best performance as a 50-year-old woman finding a new start in life through romance.
In Malta, it is tradition for the younger sister to devote her life to the church when an older brother enters the priesthood so Carmen is obliged to live a life of servitude from the age of 16 until 50, when her brother dies.
Realizing her own mortality, Carmen realizes it’s finally time to leave the church and make up for lost time.
Through a set of odd circumstances, she finds herself hearing confessions in her late brother’s local church, to the delight of many parishioners.
