Description

The film begins with a handsome youth and maiden making love beneath a tree. To them enters the maiden's stern parent, who forthwith fells the youth to the earth with a club and takes off his daughter to a convent. The lover comes to, and asks to see his sweetheart at the convent door. He is refused, and decides to force his way in. A convenient tree provides the means-he climbs up, forces a window, and enters. He finds his love in the kitchen, and she hurriedly conceals him in a big chest as the Abbess enters. The Abbess lifts the lid of the chest, never suspecting what it contains, and the girl in her fear drops the basin in her hand, the Abbess ringing the bell in anger and the Abbott and a number of nuns rushing in. The girl is led away for punishment by the nuns and the Abbott is left alone, and receives an unpleasant surprise when he is suddenly seized from behind and a dagger held close to his throat. With this means of persuasion at hand, he changes clothes with the youth, who then forces him to get into the chest and goes off after the girl. That he releases her, goes without saying, and the matter ends happily as they leave the building together.
