About

The French historian Jules Michelet has recounted the tragic story of a young girl in 18th Century France who, after falling under the influence of a local priest, is accused by him of witchcraft, tried, and burnt at the stake. The tables are turned, however, when the story falls into the hands of a motion picture mogul, a screenwriter, and a remarkable leading lady. –D. K.
