Mr. Vig who has never known romantic love, and Sister Ambrosija, the young nun, who by chance, or destiny, becomes part of his life.
Mr. Jørgen Lauersen Vig is a well educated 82 year old bachelor and owner of a worn down castle situated in the Danish country side. All his life Mr. Vig has dreamed of turning his castle into an orthodox Russian monastery. After a visit to Russia and negotiations with the Russian patriarchate, a delegation of nuns headed by Sister Ambrosija come to Denmark in order to asses whether Mr. Vig’s castle is fit to serve as a monastery. The nuns approve of the castle, but at the same time they demand extensive repairs to it. When the nuns leave again for Russia, Mr. Vig sets out to do the repairs all by himself. The following summer sister Ambrosija and some Russian workers return and Mr. Vig’s dream seems about to come true.
The nuns and the Russian workers move into the castle, and slowly they take over some daily work and introduce also new routines. Mr. Vig’s life changes: he had never had any women around, and now he has to share his home with the strong-willed Sister Ambrosija and the other nuns. And they demand more and more repairs. The Russian patriarchate does offer to pay for all future repairs to the castle, but only on the condition that Mr. Vig leaves his castle to them by will.
Mr. Vig has serious doubts: should he leave his castle to the Russian church by will and thus carry out his dream of a monastery? Or should he keep his castle to himself and continue his lonely life as a bachelor? And meanwhile Sister Ambrosija and Mr. Vig have gotten used to each other… –First Hand Films
