In the 19th century, the Crouteux Inn, located in the Pyrenees mountains, is owned by Pierre and Rose Martin. The innkeepers regularly order their deaf-mute adopted son, Violet, to rob and murder their guests. One evening, a group of travelers take refuge in the inn after having trouble with their stagecoach. Among the travelers is Father Carnus, who is traveling with a novice to a local monastery. Pierre wants to kill the group and take their possessions, but after his deeply religious wife refuses to kill the priest, things go badly for the couple.
