The Magdalene Sisters - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Based on a true story, this film examines the Magdalene Sisters Asylum, where reportedly 30,000 girls over the course of time have spent slaving away doing laundry seven days a week to wash away their sins. Placed in the asylum with no expectation of release, the girls are assumed whores and sinners by those outside and the wicked nuns that run the place. Even more surprising is the "crimes" that put these girls in servitude; one of the girls has a baby outside of wedlock, another is placed inside for being raped by her cousin, and yet another is put away just for being a flirtatious teenager.
