Two young nuns explore Chicago, from a supermarket to the Art Institute and in front of churches on Sunday, confronting people with the crucial question, "Are you happy?" They meet a lonely girl, a happy mother, another nun, lovers, hippie musicians, a lady sociologist, a professor, and even actor Stepin Fetchit. The answers they get range in sincerity and depth: "Happiness is the absence of fear," "Avoiding people," "Raspberries," "Joy in knowing Christ."
The humour and sadness of these honest encounters lift the film beyond its interview format to a serious and moving inquiry into the concerns of contemporary man in 1968, and also into the circumstances in which men will actually express their concerns.
Bonus features include an update with the nuns.
