Storyline

In a little village at the end of the 1890's, a young woman offends all the 'right-thinking' villagers by allowing men in her house in the absence of her husband. When he is found dead, all of the suspicion is directed towards the liberal woman. She is judged more for her morality then for the crime she is accused of. Her culpability is still a subject of debate today. Written by Jean-Marie Berthiaume <jiembe@videotron.ca>

Trivia

Le film est basé sur la véritable histoire de Cordélia Viau qui donna lieu à l'un des procès les plus retentissants dans ce Québec du début du siècle, allant même jusqu'à créer une véritable controverse. En effet, les deux jeunes amants furent jugés non pas sur des faits avérés, mais des présomptions et aussi sur leur marginalité et leur comportement différent. Il était alors préférable de se séparer de ces deux fauteurs de trouble. See more »
