A young priest arrives at Ambricourt, his new parish. He is not welcome. The girls of the catechism class laugh at him, his colleagues criticize his diet of bread and wine and ascetic lifestyle. Concerned about Chantal, the daughter of the Countess, the priest visits the Countess at the family chateau, and appears to help her resume communion with God after a period of doubt, but she dies during the following night, allowing her daughter to spread false rumors that the priest's harsh words had tormented her to death. Refusing confession, Chantal had previously spoken to the priest about her hatred of her parents. Despite his passion, he is not able to overcome the mistrust of the people of the village.
