In a 14th century British village an illiterate young peasant girl becomes obsessed with Virgin Mary and, supported by the local priest, claims special powers to communicate with her. According to custom, and much to the dismay of her skeptical and often profane mother, she is enclosed in the wall of the local church, becoming an "Anchoress" in the life-long service of God.
