In 1750 the road to Quebec leads through a small Acadian settlement called Tintamarre. Mathilde and Acquila Girouard are raising their family in a pastoral paradise. Then the English come. Mati and ‘Quila should be at the mercy of the English Empire. They’re being pushed around by pestilent priests and pursued by violent rangers that keep count of their victims with scalps. And when Mati and the children are captured by the English for expulsion far away from home, all appears to be lost. But Acquila and the Acadian resistance will not let the English do them any more harm. “TINTAMARRE!” is a story of how ordinary people in a merciless land endure and defy inhumane attempts to extinguish them.
