Bruno Dumont makes the bold choice of casting a 10-year-old as the teenage Joan.
In 1429, the Hundred Years' War between France and England had already been going 90 odd years. Believing that God had chosen her, the young Joan is a leader of the army of the King of France and lifts the Siege of Orléans, enabling the Dauphin to be formally crowned as Charles VII.
After she is captured, she is sent for trial on charges of heresy, to be judged by pro-Burgundian and pro-English clerics. Refusing to accept the accusations, Joan stays obdurate.
