In 1894, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment at Devil's Island.
Among the witnesses who were responsible for Dreyfus' conviction was Colonel Georges Picquart (Jean Dujardin), named as leader of the counterintelligence unit that discovered the spy. However, when he learns that the French continue to pass military secrets to the Germans, Picquart will plunge into a dangerous maze of lies and corruption, endangering not only his honor, but also his life. The film goes around one of the most important chapters of the French history and literature, the Dreyfus case, which moved the French society of the end of the 19th Century. The case sent Emile Zola to exile and transforms itself in a typical narrative element of Proust's 'Looking for the lost time'. It is based on Robert Harris' novel 'An Officer and a Spy' and is written and directed by Roman Polanski, who reports in a strong way the meanness and inclemency of a system tainted by the nationalism and the irrational hate to the different person. It is a case of pure intolerance of people who don't accept the differences between human beings.
