Brief Synopsis:
In a small monastery, hidden amidst rocky mountains beside a lake far from civilization, a lonesome young monk paints frescos of saints on the walls. On a quiet sunny day, while fishing in his small rowboat in the middle of the lake, he suddenly hears female voices. Is he being tempted? Is his conscience being tested?
