The Convent

The Convent

The Convent follows four ordinary women as they give up their everyday lifestyles to embark on a spiritual journey with a community of nuns. Cut off from the outside world they will share the daily routine of prayers and work with the sisters in an attempt to discover if life has any greater meaning. Offering a remarkable glimpse into the inner workings of convent life, the women will spend 40 days and 40 nights in a world without material possessions and where the pressures of modern life are left behind. This three-part series explores whether the age old values of the nuns hold any relevance to modern women and whether or not this will have the power to transform their lives.
