In the Russian Orthodox Church, bell towers are considered a second altar. Safroniya says that not everyone is given permission to come up a bell tower. This is a deeply spiritual experience.
In the sub-zero temperatures, the nuns begin ringing the 800 kg bell with evident care and pride. The wind rushes through the stone tower. The sound is breathtaking.
