'Two young nuns explore Chicago - from a supermart the Art Institute and in front of churches on Sunday - people are facing the crucial question: "Are you happy?" They meet many people - a lonely girl, a good mother, a sister, some amateurs, two hippie musicians, a lady, a sociologist, a college professor, even Stepin Fetchit, and received many responses - "Happiness is the absence of fear", "Avoid people", "Rasberries", "Joy to know Christ". Humor and sadness of these meetings honest lift the film beyond the interview format and a serious investigation into the emotional concerns of the man, and also the circumstances in which people will express their concerns.' -Written by Kartemquin Films
