A lush, romantic musical based on a true story from 16th century France. In a close-knit farming village, a marriage contract joins young Mireille to Martin Guerre, who soon abandons her. Seven years later when Martin Guerre unexpectedly returns their relationship blossoms with erotic passion, but the hostile villagers begin to wonder: is this the real Martin Guerre?
