In the Middle Ages, a convent of nuns is led by Father Tommasso. The nuns include Alessandra, who wants a better life for herself and is held at the convent due to her father’s support of the church rather than her own bidding; Ginevra, a gossip who is later revealed to be a lesbian and Jewish; and Fernanda, an emotionally unstable and violent woman who is later revealed to practice as a Witch. The three of them assault the gardener, who quits in disgust. Meanwhile, a young servant named Massetto gets caught having sexual relations with his master’s wife. While on the run, he discovers Father Tommasso, who has gone to sell some embroidery but has gotten drunk instead. Massetto helps him get back home. The two arrange to have Massetto work as a gardener while pretending to be a deaf-mute, in hopes that this will dissuade the nuns from giving him trouble. Alessandra and Fernanda both have sex with Massetto. Massetto and Alessandra begin to form a closer bond while Ginevra begins to have feelings for Fernanda…
