Meanwhile, Lorenzo Surprenant offers her an easy life in a city in the United States and the third, Eutrope Gagnon, is a neighbour and a valiant and modest farmer. Faced with events that jostle her, Maria must then take destiny into her own hands and decide what her future will be. This is Sébastien Pilote’s fourth feature film.
