Original French version.

 

The ambition of Les Fils (The Sons), a new-style religious order, was to get out of the churches and be among "real people", even to the point of working in factories alongside their impoverished, downtrodden brethren. Flouting clerical norms, they got remarkably close to the people of a disadvantaged neibourhood, helping the residents find their voice. They were embroiled in the political struggles of the time, even though religion was steadily losing public favour. Through fascinating testimonials, photographs and images of a now-lost Montreal, THE SONS (Les Fils) renders a positive account of a humanist religious movement with a notable lack of proselytising.
