Time Out says

Nigel Wingrove's earlier short, Visions of Ecstasy, was banned in Britain as blasphemous. Mother Superior Elizabeth (Daly) lies in her convent tower. Amid her crucifixes, she tries to reconcile her sexual urges and her divine calling. Her vows are threatened by a crisis of faith, her yearnings are too much for her, and, in her hallucinations, she protests her virtue and virginity to Mary Magdalene, playing devil's advocate. Mother Superior's torment is intercut with her fantasies, cue dolled-up 'nuns' pleasuring themselves and each other with crucifixes.
