Three days in life of the most French and “heretic” poet of Paris streets Francois Villon. Being brought up by a priest, Guillaume de Villon, the young roughneck decides to take a wrong path which leads him to many troubles, imprisonments and torments. Having been banished from the city for his “misbehavior”, after 10 years of wandering, Villon returns to his beloved Paris, only to be met by the dangerous ghosts from his past. He finds himself alone, betrayed by his best friend Loran, who sold him and his biting poetry to the rival – Pierre Basanier, so eager to imprison and finally exterminate the “talented womanizer”. Isabel, Villon’s faithful beloved woman, willing to save his life, comes up with a plan to marry the irritating Basanier, who has been harassing her for years. Having escaped from prison Francois Villon saves the day and his beloved Isabel.
