A priest in love: The story of Christophe and Valérie

We bring you the third episode in our eight-part series on forbidden love. In this edition we head to the south of France, where Father Périchon gave up the priesthood for the love of Valérie. They are now free to live their love, but the judgmental looks of many parishioners, the anonymous letters and the insults cast a dark shadow over their relationship.
