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—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. 

 

Que reste-t-il d’une vie de luttes? À l’aube de la disparition de leur petite communauté de religieuses, les Sœurs auxiliatrices du Québec se préparent à léguer un précieux matrimoine: des années d’engagement pour les droits des femmes, la justice sociale et la solidarité internationale. Entre appréhension de la mort, francs éclats de rires et repas bien arrosés, ces femmes dignes, généreuses, libres et irrésistibles, croyantes mais n’ayant certainement pas foi dans une Église dominée par les hommes, vivent profondément le sens de la sororité. Jusqu’au bout. Ainsi soient-elles…
