Filmed mainly at the Montréal community of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, this film revolves around three young Quebecers, Michel, Robert and Johane, from their first days in the temple to their initiation six months later. The film examines the family life of Krishna members, the active proselytizing in the streets, the temple rituals, and the role of women and their reliance on men for spiritual guidance. This film affords a close look at one of the controversial new religious organizations to have emerged from the sixties in the United States.
