Easter service takes place in the Russian Orthodox church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Montréal. The depth of emotion touched by this ancient ceremony is reflected in the film. Filmed in the shadowy, taper-lit space, sonorous with chanting voices, and coloured with occasional views of the icons and frescos, the film shows an absorbing religious experience.
