Monasticism. Close. Undisguised. Times tough, times witty as life itself. Following the tracks of an alternative, seemingly obsolete lifestyle, the observer beholds of those moments that constitute the cloistral life.

The story of a simple daily routine, of entirely personal memories and of the constant pursuit of a fulfilled, contented life.
