Synopsis

Two young nuns meet during a Catholic gathering in Croatia and fall in love. They live in two separate convents, but the spaces they once considered havens of solace and spiritual fulfilment turn out to be more earthly than expected. Disillusioned by the Church and the sexual and psychological abuse within the institution and driven by their blossoming love, they make the most difficult decision of their life – to leave the convent and start a new life together on the island of Korčula and seek acceptance from the traditional local community.

Reviews

Director Kragic said her hope for the film was to create empathy, not controversy, over the couple's story.

— Bangkok Post

Ivana Marinic creatively incorporates narrative resources of fiction and animation film into the language of the documentary.

— Astra Film Festival: Honorable Mention - Jury's justification

This film is important as a bold piece of art, but it is even more important as a message from the people for the people. And the message is: who I am and how I live my life is Nun of Your Business
