Monika (Mónica Zanchi), a free-spirited daughter of a rich Baron, joins the convent. She tells one sister how she was sexually assaulted by a group of young men; this gains her sympathy from her fellow sisters.[2] Monika has sex and performs various sex acts with various men in and around the convent. Various nuns witness this, causing them to question their faith and break their repression.

He has sex with Monika; witnessed by most nuns in the convent. Monika is later dismissed. Emanuelle later leaves of her own free will.[3]
