Justine is the tragic story of a young woman who embarks on a journey to France where she plans to lead a life of uncompromising virtue. Justine watches as her sister, Juliette, becomes corrupted by a wicked Abbess in the nunnery where she was raised. Hoping to escape the same fate, Justine breaks out on her own only to become the victim of many who claim to be charitable and trustworthy, suffering sexual abuse and terror that force her to extreme lengths to survive.
Justine has been adapted for film, and its author, the Marquis de Sade, was the focus of the 2000 film Quills starring Geoffrey Rush.
