Giulia pleases Don Carlos even when he asks her to spend a night of love with the beautiful young Sister Isabella, Giulia's niece, forced against her will to take the monastic vows but, in reality, very much in love with a boy from the country 'origin. Considering that the current abbess, Sister Lavina, appears to be ever closer to death, Giulia and Carmela go wild in a war that will have to determine who, on Lavinia's death, will succeed her in her duties and functions.
