Sister Jude (Loren O’Dair) is a novice nun about to take her simple vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience in a cloistered convent. However, before she does, she develops a mysteriously severe skin condition that continues to worsen along with her mental state. Trying her best to obey Mother Superior (Shenagh Govan) and Father Paul (Christopher Saul) in accordance with her future vows, she struggles with her feelings for another nun, Sister Agatha (Alexandra Dowling), who she frequently dreams about. The insistent need to scratch overwhelms anything else and clouds Sister Jude’s mind, who will do anything to make the itch stop.
