Lionel has just grown out of his teen years. He will leave his village to get married on the land of his future wife, Eva. He will live there under the supervision and authority of his mother-in-law, Ana. As a stranger to their land, he will be put to the test. He will have to work for his mother-in-law and prove that he deserves his daughter. She may deem him unworthy, in which case he will be repudiated. For her part, Eva must pass the initiation rite before she can marry Lionel. The village women share their secrets with the girls and teach them about sexuality. At the end of this rite, Eva will be considered a grown woman.
