Sometimes we have no control over what life brings us. This is completely true for Marie who had her dreams set on a life of prosperity and propriety. She finds that life isn’t as simple as she has been grown up to think, and when she finds herself torn between a life of love and a life of convenience, she finds that decisions aren’t so simple either.
Her dreams have always been pinned upon the life she would have if she were to marry Leroy Bouche; but when another man enters into the picture, things aren’t always so certain.
