France, 1794. Maxence Etienne, a soldier for the Republique, believes in the revolution that is bringing liberty to France. Armelle Bernard is a young woman whose father was sentenced to death for hiding counter-revolutionaries. She decides to confront the priest who betrayed her father, and as the conflict escalates, she herself is ordered to be executed - an order to be carried out by Maxence. But he can't bring himself to carry out his assignment. Though Armelle and Maxence are on opposite sides of the revolution, they find themselves united as fugitives of the new republic. Now they must find a way to trust each other as they search for a path to freedom.
