The title of this routine drama, Vers l'Extase refers to the ecstasy of religious experience. In search of this elusive state, Catherine (Pascale Petit) is very devout, and for murky reasons, decides to marry a man -- perhaps to leave her niggling family behind -- and move to Morocco with him. But once in Morocco, Catherine does not consider her marriage on a par with her quest, and so she goes to live with a family as a maid in order to attain a properly humble state. The confusing journey does not end there, as she finally decides even that job is not meeting her expectations.
