In 15th century France, a Parisian young lawyer, Richard Courtois, wearies of the cynical sophistication of the capital and solicits appointments as the public defender in a rural town of Abbeville. Courtois finds himself expected to defend a pig, owned by the mysterious gypsy Samira, in a murder trial of a young boy.
