New Men chronicles one year in the life of Holy Cross Monastery. Over the course of the Church year, a picture of life at Holy Cross unfolds over a backdrop of rolling hills and striking seasonal changes. The monks' reflections on shedding former identities to embrace new lives of prayerful asceticism are woven together with rarely seen moments of the community’s daily work and prayer. As the brotherhood prepares for Pascha, one of the unprofessed monks considers his journey towards Orthodoxy and his upcoming final vows. The film culminates with the tonsure ceremony, in which he receives a new name and vows to live in the Monastery until death.
