Eric Rohmer's tale of revolutionary terror in 1790s France, filmed using digital backdrops based on maps and pictures from the period. Former lovers Grace Elliott (Lucy Russell) and Philippe, Duke of Orleans (Jean-Claude Dreyfus) have remained friends despite their passionate disagreement over political issues - she being a staunch royalist, and he a supporter of the revolutionary cause. After the arrest of Louis XVI, Grace asks Philippe for his help in rescuing the fugitive governer of the Tuileries, and he agrees to do what he can. Despite this however, the Duke remains committed to the revolution, and when he is asked to vote on the matter of the King's execution, he lets his conscience lead the way.
