Synopsis: 1910. Maria Chapdelaine vit au nord du lac Saint-Jean avec sa famille, qui travaille sans relâche à toujours repousser les limites de la forêt. Âgée de 17 ans, elle sera bientôt confrontée à un dilemme de taille. François Paradis, un coureur des bois intrépide lui promet de revenir au printemps pour lui demander sa main, mais entre temps, deux autres prétendants se présentent à elle. D’abord, Lorenzo Surprenant, qui travaille dans les usines du Massachusetts et lui promet une vie simple et douce, et Eutrope Gagnon, son vaillant voisin, qui lui propose de défricher les lots de terre tout près de chez elle. Maria devra alors choisir son avenir; partir ou rester.

Synopsis: Maria Chapdelaine, a young woman of 17, lives with her family on land they are clearing near the Péribonka River in rural Québec in early 1900. True pioneers, the Chapdelaine family struggles to push back the forest. In a home where even physical exhaustion cannot diminish the warmth of family life, Maria finds herself faced with a deep dilemma. François Paradis, a free-spirited fur trapper and logger, promises Maria to return in spring to marry her, while Lorenzo Surprenant arrives at the farm offering a comfortable existence in an American city, and Eutrope Gagnon, a quiet and determined young farmer has staked a claim on the land next to the Chapdelaine’s. Thrust into the adult world, and juggling with thoughts of land, family and love, Maria will suddenly be forced to choose her future as a woman.
