At the time of the 100 years’ war between England and France, a young country girl, Jeanne, believes she has a mission from God to rid France of the English. She arrives in the court of the Dauphin, Charles, and manages to convince him of her divine purpose. She is given an army and miraculously manages to liberate the towns of Orléans and Reims. However, once the Dauphin has been crowned King of France, he finds that he has no further use for Jeanne. He betrays her to the English and she is tried as a heretic at Rouen. Aged just 19, Jeanne is burnt alive for witchcraft.
