Set in New France in the year 1665, Joseph Côté escapes from prison just before he is to be executed. Taking refuge in the surrounding forest, he discovers the body of a Jesuit and decides to take on the dead priest`s identity. In the nearby hamlet of Beaufort, he meets peasants who give him shelter and sustenance, believing him to be the real priest, who was a famous hunter of werewolves. That evening, one of the peasants is killed by a werewolf and Joseph goes after the beast. Wounded and fearing he may turn into a werewolf, his companions lock him up but Joseph escapes again. This time he runs into Mary Labott, who is searching for her missing sister. He finds himself falling for her, but must first protect both Mary and himself from the werewolf.
