“Running two-and-a-half engrossing hours, Beyond the Hills explores the push and pull between the collective and the individual, between faith and free will.” Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. In an isolated Orthodox convent in Romania, Alina has just been reunited with Voichita after spending several years in Germany. The two young women have supported and loved each other since meeting as children in an orphanage. Alina wants Voichita to leave and return with her to Germany, but Voichita has found refuge in faith and a family in the nuns and their priest.
