Maria Chapdelaine, a young woman of 16, lives and lives with her family on land on the banks of the Peribonka River in rural Quebec in the 1910s. True pioneers, the Chapdelaine family works tirelessly to push the boundaries of the forest. Where the harshness of everyday life meets the delicacy of a warm family life, the strong and hopeful Maria finds herself faced with daunting dilemmas. Francois Paradis, coureur des bois, free and wild lumberjack, promises Maria to come back in the spring to marry her, while Lorenzo Surprenant offers her an easy life in a city in the United States and Eutrope Gagnon, valiant and modest farmer, has took a lot of colonization, close to that of Chapdelaine. Between territory, family and love, Maria, pushed into the adult world, will suddenly have to choose her future as a woman.
