The first snow falls on Quebec. As the disappearance of their small religious community looms, the Helper Nuns begin sorting through their life — a lifetime of struggles. These valiant all-terrain militants, who believe in God but not in a Church dominated by men, have spent years and years campaigning for women’s rights, social justice and international solidarity. Basically, a precious heritage that Gisèle, Marie-Paule, Nicole, Suzanne and their fellow sisters are preparing to leave behind. Between apprehension about death, outbursts of laughter and meals washed down with wine, these dignified free women live the meaning of sisterhood to the full. Until the very end.
