WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A tale of two sets of very different lovers and the pitfalls (some of their own making and some imposed by the strict hierarchical society that demands that everybody – especially women know their place) they encounter on their separate roads to finding each other. The mise en scene is early 19th century at war with Napoleon, while members of its intelligentsia fight a war in print about women's' duties in maintain family values and by extension the fabric of the nation versus a nascent feminist movement.
