Based on: Jeanne D'Arc / Charles Péguy.
In the fifteenth century, both France and England stake a blood claim for the French throne. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan leads the army of the King of France. When she is captured, the Church sends her for trial on charges of heresy. Refusing to accept the accusations, the graceful Joan of Arc will stay true to her mission. Bruno Dumont's decision to work with a ten-year-old actress re-injects this heroine's timeless cause and ideology with modernity that highlights both the tragic female condition and the incredible fervor, strength, and freedom women show when shackled by societies and archaic virile orders that belittle and alienate them.
