Nun at the Crossroads stars Rosanna Schiafanno as a Belgian nun caught up in the turmoil of the Congo's fight for independence. Pausing to tend an injured woman, Schiafanno is raped by marauders. When she discovers she is pregnant, she is ostracized not only by her family but by the Vatican. Missionary John Richardson offers to marry Rosanna, but she refuses, declaring her fidelity to her sacred vows. Nun at the Crossroads was an Italian/Spanish coproduction, released in those countries as Violenza per Una Monaca and Encrucijada para una Monja.
