“When I answered that ad, and God knows that at that time I would have taken anything, I could’ve never imagined what was going to happen to me. No one could’ve guessed it. And I don’t know if anyone could’ve protected me from it.” Manon is 20 when she meets the man who will change the course of her life. Charming and sure of himself, this fundamentalist Catholic and father of five children gradually reveals his troubled and dangerous character. Going headlong into the darkness of a family and a world which are foreign to her, Manon embarks on a chaotic path from which no one will come out unscathed. 

This zoom event is in English and is free for Alliance members, Wednesday, September 7, 1pm.
