Virgin Territory

Sex, lies and tradition

Virgin Territory
Set during the black death in Italy, a young lorathio gets on the wrong side of the baddie and seeks refuge undercover in a convent. Meanwhile the baddie makes a pretty young thing an offer she can hardly refuse... but she does, as a Russian nobleman in en route to marry her. Smelling a rat, the baddie decides to investigate, while she seeks refuge in a convent (yes, the same one). Naturally boy meets girl under anonymous conditions, and the ladykiller finds himself in love for the first time, but has no idea who she was. The situation resolves itself in due course after much adventure. This film went straight to DVD overseas.
