English Synopsis

Jérôme Chambard (Michel Simon) works as a handyman for a community of nuns but his religious education leaves a lot to be desired. The bishop (Lucien Barroux) comes to visit and it turns out he is a former classmate of Chambard. To help him keep his job, the bishop had Chambard perform penance: he must learn the Ten Commandments by heart. Several vignettes illustrating the Ten Commandments follow, narrated by the devil himself.
