The 14th century France is plunged into the endless war with England, and the plague has already reduced the population. There is, however, a refuge of people who try to escape all the horrors. It is the Commandery of the Hospitaller knights.
The greedy duke is furious to find the Templars’ treasure chests contain only parchments concerning debts to them nobody will still honour. Captain Thomas is thrown in jail, his friends fear torture and death. Instead he is ordered to extract the truth from his haughty lover, who even incites him to torture her by branding for show so as to set a deadly trap. Unable to expel his gay stonemason-lover Laurent because of the pest quarantine, Géraud succumbs to ‘Sodomy’ temptation again, with bloody outcome.
