‘I want to be a nun’ gives an exclusive look behind the scenes at life in a convent as well as following the journey of several young women who, at the end of the programme, have to decide whether they want to live permanently as a nun. The women taking part will reside in one of three convents spread across Spain – one in Madrid, Granada and Alicante – and will be expected to perform duties that range from working with hundreds of children in a crèche to going on a mission to the Bolivian jungle, as well as the day to day duties involved in preserving a 500-year-old closed order.
