How does one get inside the Berthierville convent, home to North America’s last community of cloistered French-speaking nuns? That is what Louise Sigouin managed to do, spending a year recording testimonials by women who have dedicated their lives to God. Taking a deeply humanistic approach, she asks each woman to talk about her childhood, family and vocation. A fascinating look inside a sisterhood with an uncertain future, revealing the contagious joy of the sisters, whose openness and curiosity refute common preconceptions.
