A Catholic boarding school for girls during the Second World War: Over the Christmas holidays, the girls, who have no family, are left in the care of the pious nuns who run the home. They become holidays in which a religious understanding that regards all earthly pleasures as sinful and preaches abstinence, provoked by a sumptuous cake, meets a small rebellion of lust for life.
