After being ordained a Jesuit priest, Isaac Jogues makes his way to New France (Canada) on a mission to the native peoples. Here, he befriends Ahatsistari, a brave and powerful Huron warrior and chief of the village of Teanaustayaé, who willingly converts to Christianity in 1642. The two, along with other missionaries and the Chief's wife, undergo severe trials and hardships, such as discouragement, torture, mutilation, captivity and slavery.

Isaac Jogues returns to a hero’s welcome in France.
