According to Deadline, the movie is a revenge plot centering around two best friends. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will play the friends in the movie. The main characters in the movie are Norman knight Jean de Carrouges and the squire Jacques Le Gris. They were friends. The plot is described as follows, “One goes to war and returns to accuse Le Gris of raping his wife Margerite de Carrouges. No one will believe the woman, and the soldier appeals to the king of France to undo a decision handed down by Count Pierre d’Anencon, which favored Le Gris. The decision handed down is that the two men fight a duel to the death. The one left alive would be declared the winner as a sign of God’s will. And if Jean de Carrouges loses, his wife will be burned at the stake for punishment for her false accusation.”
