The Nun I Never Was

Many girls have had fantasies in their youth about becoming a nun, aspiring to be like Audrey Hepburn in The Nun's Story, or Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. As they passed through puberty, most abandoned the idea, but not all. In this programme, three women talk about why they chose to enter a convent, and whether it turned out as they expected. Of the three, only one has stayed, but all have thought deeply about what motivated them and how the experience has shaped their lives ever since.
