Abstract

French writer Restif de la Bretonne, American patriot Thomas Paine, aging Italian rake Cassanova, and an Austrian aristocrat debate the meaning of liberty and revolution as they ride toward the city of Varennes during the French Revolution. Ahead of them on the road are King Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette who have fled Paris. Their imaginary conversation offers a glimpse of history.
