Flowers from the Mount of Olives

Õlimäe õied

Estonia, 2013


Right beside the city of Jerusalem, in a Russian Orthodox Convent on the Mount of Olives, lives an 82-year-old Estonian nun, Mother Ksenya. Although inside these walls, the clock is never set and life still follows the Julius calendar, the twenty years that she has spent there have passed quickly.
