1857. Court. The prosecution and the defense are ready to confront each other. In the middle, Flaubert. It is his trial. Madame Bovary is judged guilty of contempt of public and religious morality. The plea begins and the novel comes to life. Emma’s story unfolds before our eyes. The trial brings us back to reality by interstice and animates the debate on the condition of women at that time.
