Jeruusalemma külje all, Vene Õigeusu kloostris Õlimäel, elab 82-aastane Eestist pärit nunn ema Ksenja. Ja kuigi kõrge betoonmüüriga eraldatud kloostris kella kunagi ei keerata ning elu käib endiselt Juliuse kalendri järgi, on 20 aastat seal ema Ksenja jaoks möödunud kui üks silmapilk. Nunnade hierarhias on ta jõudnud eelviimasele astmele. On jäänud vaid üks samm – suur skeema, lõplikku vaikusesse. Kuid enne veel on talle antud luba viimast korda ära rääkida oma elu lugu.

* In English: *
Right alongside Jerusalem, in a Russian Orthodox Convent in Mount of Olives, lives the 82 year-old Estonian nun Mother Ksenya. Although inside the convent’s cement walls the clock is never set and life still follows the Julius calendar, the 20 years that Mother Ksenya has spent there have passed by in a flash. In the hierarchy of the nunnery she has now achieved the second-to-last level. She is heading towards complete silence, the Great Schema. But before that she has been given permission to tell the story of her life for the very last time.
