Original title: In Search of God

In the fourth successful Dutch series of In Search of God, presenter and actress Lieke van Lexmond, top model Kim Feenstra, socialite Christina Curry, actress and writer Sanne Vogel and punk rocker Elle Bandita (AKA Ryanne van Dorst) go looking for God in silence.

Each celebrity undertakes a controversial, entertaining, confrontational and emotional search. The five national celebrities immerse themselves in monastic life. All are non-believers and introduced to an unknown world they’ve always felt a resistance toward. They go on an Ignatian silent retreat in the old St Paul\\\'s Abbey in Oosterhout. It’s a program of daily prayer, reflection, and spiritual direction. Once a day they have a talk with their spiritual counselor. And other than unburdening themselves to the video diary in their monastic cell, they must keep silent for an entire week. Several read the Bible for the first time, work in the garden until their hands are blistered, spend hours sitting on the hard wooden church benches and take turns washing the dishes for the monastic community. But they also find rest, become frustrated, give up their resistance and are moved by the love and warmth of the friars.
