Tragicomic short documentary about the life in a Belgian nunnery, where the last three Sisters Norbertienen and their Pomeranian Skippy prepare for the festive month of December.
Once upon a time, this Belgian convent was populated by dozens of Sisters Norbertienen. Today, only three of them remain, with their little dog. For these aged ladies, drinking a beer at lunch and watching soap series at night seems as normal as praying or reading the Bible. As best as they can, they prepare for the festive season. They receive family and friends, take the crib from the cabinet and toast to New Year’s Eve. Tragicomic short documentary about these last three nuns, and their Pomeranian dog Skippy.
