"Eine junge Frau, jüngste Tochter einer durch und durch weltlichen Familie, schließt sich einem Orden an. Am Tag ihrer Einkleidung treffen sich alle Verwandten beim Kloster. Als sich die Zeremonie verschiebt, brechen auf einer Obstwiese lang aufgestaute Konflikte los: Unausgesprochenes drängt ans sommerliche Tageslicht, Lebensentwürfe und Haltungen werden hinterfragt. Die familiären Zwistigkeiten verlieren ihre Wucht, als sich Profanes und Sakrales ineinanderschieben. Warmherzige "menschliche Komödie" über das Loslassen, unterhaltsam, charmant und nachdenklich erzählt. Dabei werden die Ereignisse visuell wie akustisch von der subtilen Kunst poetisch-stiller Chiffren getragen." []
