In 1850, on the isolated French island of Saint-Pierre, a murder shocks the natives. Two fishermen are arrested. One of them, Louis Ollivier, dies in custody, the other, Neel Auguste, is sentenced to death by the guillotine. However the island has neither a guillotine nor an executioner. While one is sent for, Auguste is placed under the supervision of the local army Captain and his wife.
