France, 1560. In the foothills of the Pyrenees, Bertrande tends to her livestock and mothers her young son. Seven years after her husband disappeared a stranger, Arnaud, walks into her life and they decide to present him to the world as her long-lost husband – returned. But is it possible that it really is her husband?

With accusations in the air, can she really trust her instinct that this is her long-lost husband? Is it possible to really know the ones we love the most? The Return explores the mystery behind relationships and how well we know others in our lives.
