Summary
In Ireland in the 1960s, three young women were sent to the Magdalene Laundries, an institution for "fallen" women, where they will atone for their sins through a regimented life of work and prayer. They all had to work in the laundry, where the strict nuns would break everyone's wills through sadistic punishment. Based on a true story

  • Originally released as a motion picture in 2002
  • With documentary "Sex in a cold climate" (1997, 50 min.) / Testimony Films for Channel Four ; producer/director, Steve Humphries ; narrator, Dervia Kirwan. Presents a portrait of Magdalen asylums, run by unfeeling and sometimes sadistic Catholic nuns in Ireland for over a hundred years. The purpose of the asylums, named after the repentant biblical prostitute Mary Magdalene, was to correct the supposed sexual deviance of young women. The criteria of deviance were so broad some Magdalenes didn't know why they had been put away. The film follows the stories of four women who were detained in Magdalen asylums between the 1940s and the 1960s.
