New restoration! One Sunday in politically turbulent 1968, two young nuns explore Chicago, confronting people with the crucial question, “Are you happy?” The answers vary: "Happiness is the absence of fear," "Avoiding people," "Raspberries," "Joy in knowing Christ." They meet a lonely girl, a happy mother, young lovers, hippie musicians, a sociologist and even character actor Stepin Fetchit. The humor and sadness of these honest encounters lift the film beyond its conceit into a serious and moving inquiry into contemporary society and the circumstances under which people examine their lives. With original music by Philip Glass.
