A student, forced to come home after a strike closed his university, is also in love with Mossane. She loves him too, but they never show it physically for she has been betrothed from childhood to another. Her husband to be, left the village and moved to France where he has become wealthy. Mossane dislikes him, but he sends money and gifts to the impoverished villagers and they pressure her to marry him. Things reach a critical point when her beloved student must return to school. Unable to follow her dreams and bound by tradition Mossane takes action and tragedy ensues.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
