On the run from the battle-seasoned Lord Bruno for sleeping with his wife, the handsome and willing servant, Massetto, flees to the safety of the woods during the warm and peaceful summer of 1347. There, after a chance encounter with the always boozy but merciful Father Tommasso, the young charmer will find refuge into his convent's sanctuary, on one condition: to pretend he is a deaf-mute. However, Massetto's tempting presence will unavoidably upset the already frail balance of things within the sexually-repressed female realm, as nun after nun desperately seeks an escape from their tedious way of life and an extra reason to molest the charming handyman.

Obviously Jeff Baena must be well connected in Hollywood to be able to get funding and backing for this awful production. Aside from the poor directing, the acting was horrible. I was very tempted to walk out after the first 20 minutes, but I kept on hoping for something good to happen--and it did: after 90 minutes, it was all over! I was the first one out!
