Based on a true story from 16th century France, "The Return of Martin Guerre" tells the tale of a man who, after a pre-arranged marriage, abandons his family -- but then, following an 8-year absence, suddenly returns to the his native village. However, Martin's personality has mysteriously changed; where once he neglected and abused his wife, Bertrande, he now acts lovingly and gently toward her. This startling transformation leads some of Martin's relatives to suspect the man of being an impostor. Bertrande insists otherwise, despite mounting evidence against her "husband". Soon, the villagers have dragged Martin and Bertrande to court in order to uncover the truth.
