Demonic power is very real and it travels all around the world. The Nun is the initial storyline setup for The Conjuring series. We find Sister Irene, played by Taissa Farmiga, the younger sister to The Conjuring star, Vera Farmiga. She is a young novice who hasn’t taken all of her vows yet but travels to a Romanian castle to investigate the mysterious death by suicide of a fellow Nun. Accompanied by a Priest Father Burke, played by Demián Bichir, who was sent by The Roman Catholic Church in Rome. The Holy Grail, depicted as the Blood of Christ, is the only thing that can truly ward off demonic entities.
Demons possess the souls of living beings so before Sister Irene and Father Burke can be successful they must figure out exactly what has happened. Was it a death by suicide or death for by sacrifice? Accompanied to the castle by a nonreligious yard worker, Frenchie who is played by Belgium actor Jonas Bloquet, the three face off with demons who have the ability to change shapes and take on the form of anything.
