Description:

The year is 1347. Massetto has been forced to flee his job as a servant after being caught canoodling with the wife of his boss. Fearing for his life and in need of a place to hide, Massetto happens into a mutually beneficial relationship with an ineffective man of the cloth, Father Tommasso . 
The good father needs a groundskeeper and handyman at the convent. Massetto is told by Tommasso to pretend that he’s deaf and mute to avoid communicating with the women, but when each of the women begins to make wildly differing sexual advances on him, Massetto’s vow of silence becomes increasingly difficult.  Massetto struggles to maintain his cover as the repressed nunnery erupts in a whirlwind of pansexual horniness, substance abuse, and wicked revelry.
