"This film was shot in the summer of 1982 at the choreographic workshop of Quebec Été Danse, a dance school/festival in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The film uses no voice-over or interview, just music and movement to document the creative process of three choreographers and their shared pool of seven dancers. It then gives a cinematic version of the three dances that were created: Edouard Lock's 'Love is a Faithful Dog...Yes...No, Love is a Savage Dog...Yes...No', Paul-André Fortier's 'Sinks', and Robert Desrosiers' 'A Thousand Million Thunders'."
