A young girl reads one of the most important works written by the St. Teresa of Avila, "The Book of Her Life." Through her eyes, we revisit Sister Teresa of Jesus's early years at the Encarnación convent and discover her love of finding a new approach to faith, despite staunch opposition from the Inquisition which burned her manuscripts and put her on trial. Teresa succeeded in imposing her way of living religion and started important reformation work on founding the first of the Discalced Carmelite nunneries, the San José convent in Avila.
