DIE PFÖRTNERIN (English Title: MOTHER SUPERIOR) is a psychological horror film.
1975, Rosenkreuz Manor.
An old baroness and a young nurse share a mutual desire. The elder’s memory bears the secret of the younger’s past – the younger’s vitality bears the key to the elder’s future. They get trapped in a game of manipulation and a fight for power, leading them deeper and deeper into the abyss of the psyche and the grim world of folkish-esoteric occultism.
