La France pendant la guerre de Cent Ans. Les Français risquent de perdre la guerre depuis 92 ans contre l'Angleterre et des ennemis intérieurs. Seule la ville d'Orléans résiste bien encore ; c'est ici que se trouve le roi de France Charles VII. Pour discuter de conditions de paix acceptables, le roi envoie son émissaire Maillezais dans le camp ennemi, chez John Talbot et son allié Philippe III de Bourgogne. Mais Talbot refuse le compromis ; il préfère se préparer à la bataille finale. Son mépris est tel que, devant Maillezais, il jette les armes de sa famille d'origine française.

A British officer (Bosworth) in World War I has a dream of the life of Joan of Arc (Farrar). The officer pulls a sword out of the wall of the trench he is in, the sword used to belong to Joan of Arc. Removing the sword conjures up the ghost of Joan, leading to her telling her story. The setting then changes to France where the story of Joan of Arc is told, of her leading the French troops to victory and her subsequent burning at the stake. The story ends back in the trench with the officer deciding to go on a suicide mission, using Joan's story and sword as inspiration

In 1456, Charles VII (Richard Widmark), experiences dreams in which he is visited by Joan of Arc (Jean Seberg), the former commander of his army, burned at the stake as a heretic twenty-five years earlier. In the dream he tells Joan that her case was retried and her sentence annulled. He recalls how she entered his life as a simple, seventeen-year-old peasant girl; how she heard the voices of Saints Catherine and Margaret telling her that she would lead the French army against the English at the siege of Orléans and be responsible for having the Dauphin crowned king at Rheims cathedral. When Joan arrives at the Dauphin's palace at Chinon she discovers that he is a childish weakling with no interest in fighting. After being tested by the members of the court, who conclude that she is mad, Joan imbues the Dauphin with her belief and fervor and he gives her command of the army.
