Much like hell, the road to love is paved with good intentions
ET AU PIRE, ON SE MARIERA, is the story of Aïcha (14 years old), those who love her, and the type of love that consumes and destroys you.
Living with her mother Isabelle (Karine Vanasse), whom Aïcha (Sophie Nélisse) has yet to forgive for leaving her Algerian stepfather who she hopes will return for her, she meets Baz (Jean-Simon Leduc), a man twice her age.
For Aïcha, it is love at first sight; an all-consuming love. His only intention is to help this lost young girl, but her desire proves to be a great deal stronger and relentless.
Following Aïcha is akin to venturing into a maze where you are bound to lose yourself; much like Aïcha herself.
