On the run in the dead of winter, a fugitive priest named Nicholas, joins with a troupe of traveling actors led by the charismatic Martin. Lost in the woods, the group arrives at a village, where the actors encounter a woman named Martha being sentenced to death for the murder of a young boy. Under Martin's leadership, the actors defy tradition, discarding their usual Biblical plays, and instead, decide to stage a bold performance based on the real-life crime, turning entertainment into persuasion.
