The plot per Deadline: : "Norman knight Jean de Carrouges and squire Jacques Le Gris are friends. Jean de Carrouges goes off to war and when he returns, he accuses Le Gris of raping his wife.

And if Jean de Carrouges loses, his wife will be burned at the stake for punishment for her false accusation."
