Nympha is the story of Sarah, an American who goes to Italy to take vows needed to become a cloister nun of the "New Order" Convent. The rules of the convent are very strict, so strict that they are often considered a form of torture. Sarah's path is divided into four steps, "hear" the Lord, "see" the Lord, "touch" the Lord and "talk" with the Lord, Each step will be painful for both Sarah's physical and mental self. During Sarah's journey, she has visions of the Convents past - visions of a young woman whose life was ruined by the religious fanaticism of her violent grandfather. Her grandfather believes he can talk directly with God but, in reality, he is utterly mad. This madness is now present today - within the walls of the convent where Sarah lives.
