Synopsis

This film tells the story of the confrontation between Léon Blum, leader of the Popular Front, and Philippe Pétain, head of the French state.

When the former is arrested on September 15, 1940, accused of being responsible for the defeat of France, Hitler tolerates this situation as long as it serves his interests.

An outstanding orator and jurist, Léon Blum turns the situation around during his trial by attacking the choices made by Pétain.
