Based on true events, the film uncovers long-held assumptions about the sanctioned final duel in France between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends who become rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris, meanwhile, is Norman’s bodyguard whose wit and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in the palace. When Carrouges’ wife is brutally attacked by Le Gris, she refuses to remain silent. After he steps forward to confront his suspected assailant, a duel exhausting to the death is set to determine their fate.
