Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A desperate young woman enters into a relationship that threatens to destroy any chance she ever had for true happiness in this period drama from Canada. Donalda Laloge's (Karine Vanasse) fiancé Alexis (Roy Dupuis) was away working in a labor camp when her father declared bankruptcy, and her life was changed forever. When wealthy, churlish Mayor Séraphin Poudrier (Pierre Lebeau) agrees to pay off her father's debts in exchange for her hand in marriage, the young women reluctantly submits. Later, when Alexis returns home to find his future bride in the arms of another man, he recognizes the complexity of the predicament, and struggles with his initial instincts to win her back.
