THE LAST BATH explores the conflict between confinement and liberation. This is a film about embracing our true individuality despite imposed obligations to comply with society’s beliefs and conventions. A 40-year-old nun revisits her former life when she returns to her childhood village in order to look after her nephew. This brings forth a new set of emotions, brought about by her somber past and repressed desires in confrontation with her spirituality. The nun and her nephew find solace in each other in the midst of a “Dantesque” river valley, which reflects their isolation. Their loneliness and a twisted family background lead them astray, but these are also the elements that draw them together.
