Several shots from different angles of young adults of the "Communaute de base", small community of Christians living all together in lounge on Saint-Hubert Street in Montreal, washing dishes, clearing table, cleaning the place, including shots of a young man taking out fluorescent lamp from ceiling. Several shots from different angles of them, some on step-ladder, washing kitchen walls and painting it with brushes, plastering around electric panel, having fun doing all that. Several shots from different angles of about twenty-five persons of the community sitting all together in a room, playing guitar and singing, some clapping hands, of father Jean-Paul Lauzon pastor of the community talking to them, of one of the women reading a text for others, of father Lauzon saying prayers, everyone closing their eyes and meditating, of a man reading a text, of everyone silent, thinking.
