After prodigious French swordsman Legardere (Daniel Auteuil) is framed for the murder of a friend and fellow fencing student, the Duke de Nevers, he snatches the duke's infant child, Aurore, and raises her to become as proficient a swordsman as her late father. The real culprit behind the duke's killing is his villainous cousin (Fabrice Luchini), who has designs on Aurore's royal title. Marie Gillain plays the grown-up Aurore.
