In 19th century France, Jean Valjean is on parole after having been imprisoned for nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread. Following an unexpected act of kindness by the Bishop Myriel, he breaks his parole, resolving to become an honest man. But the police inspector Javert, believing justice must be served, relentlessly pursues Valjean throughout France, making it impossible for him to leave his past behind. Along the way, we meet the desperate Fantine, whose child Cosette is taken in by Valjean, the comically conniving Thenardiers, the revolutionaries Enjolras and Marius, and the lovelorn Eponine. A powerful, passionate, and fast-paced adaptation of Victor Hugo's epic novel of love and justice.
