"I have departed from this planet... I am living in the scintillating splendor of the stars." -- Jules Massenet 

In ancient Egypt, a beautiful and seductive courtesan named Thaïs has captivated the city of Alexandria with her charm. At the same time, the monk Athanaël decides Thais needs to reform and turn to a life of religious devotion and piety. However, the monk becomes obsessed with the eroticism of this courtesan. Will the courtesan find religion and salvation, or will the  monk give in to his lustful urges and compromise his own virtue for this fallen woman?
