Adapted from Matthew G. Lewis’ 1796 cult gothic novel, THE MONK follows the tragic destiny of Brother Ambrosio in 17th century Catholic Spain.

Abandoned at birth at the gates of the Capuchin monastery, Ambrosio has been raised by the friars. Today, he has grown into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor. Feared for his righteousness, he believes he is immune from temptation.

The arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions, leading him onto the path of sin.
