Set in 15th century France. A Parisian lawyer wearies of the cynical sophistication of the capital and solicits appointment as the public defender in a remote, rural province. He finds himself expected to defend a pig in a murder trial. (As the public prosector says, "Anyone who knows animals knows there are good ones and bad ones.")
