The Screen Guide

THE ABBEY puts monastic life to the test in this extraordinary series which follows five Australian women as they spend 33 days and nights living the life of a Benedictine nun. Never before has the outside world entered the cloisters of The Abbey. Will the women cope with the 4am wake-up calls and the seven daily visits to the church? Can they live by the 1,500 year-old Rule of Silence, Obedience and Renunciation? Will they each find what they are searching for?
