After the end of a destructive relationship and in search of healing, spirituality and herself, Maja Borg tries to reconcile two apparently mutually exclusive practices, Christianity and BDSM. She visits queer groups, practices BDSM rituals and deepens her Christian faith in personal conversations with a Swedish priestess.

In wonderfully dark and dramatic images, she takes us on a journey into her innermost being and explores the transformative union of lived BDSM practice and lived spirituality into a ritual experience that illustrates the deeply human on both sides.

Maja Borg is a Swedish filmmaker, writer and artist. Her award-winning films have been shown in art galleries and museums as well as on television.
