The film begins with the arrival of a young, sickly priest (Claude Laydu) at the godless parish of Ambricourt in Northern France.  Here he becomes drawn into the complex domestic life of a wealthy Count. Narrated by excerpts of the priest’s diary, the film follows his efforts to awaken the villagers from their spiritual lethargy, with their sufferings and triumphs.
