Based on a true story, The Magdalene Sisters is the story of four young women in 1960s Ireland who were sent to the Magdalene Sisters Asylum, a Catholic institution for the reform of wayward young women. Young women who were deemed unfit for society were imprisoned in the The Magdalene Asylum, also known as the Magdalene Laundries, and forced to work in the laundries while nuns “reformed” the girls by sadistically punishing and abusing them.
