The award-winning Aletheia Stage & Film Co. proudly presents a gripping, romantic allegory about two families in Post-Napoleonic France bound by a ring and a promise. Shortly before his death at the hands of Napoleon's enemies, Alain Desormeau implores Arnaud Rousseau to protect his children, Julien and Helene. Rousseau agrees and, as a symbol of his promise, receives the ring of Desormeau's late wife. Facing his own death years later, Rousseau gives the ring to Julien who in turn pledges to protect Rousseau's family. However, Julien soon discovers his oath demands much more than he had thought as he is faced with the choice of saving himself or keeping his promise to defend those he loves.
