While a guillotine and an executioner are sent from France, a convict sentenced to death on the isolated island of Saint-Pierre strives to better himself in the eyes of the police chief's beautiful wife. But when an event takes place turning public opinion against his execution, the town's politicians become even more determined to carry it out -- and teach the police chief and his wife a lesson they will never forget.
