League of the Star

It is the dawn of the French revolution and masses of hungry peasants burn wealthy chateaus throughout France.  After the death of his estranged family, eighteen year-old nobleman, Marcel de la Croix, is forced to raise the royalist banner, despite his own revolutionary leanings.  The wreck of his family fortress becomes a bastion for newly disenfranchised aristocrats, and Marcel and his fiery associate, Pierre Lafont, lead a rebel group called the ‘League of the Star’. After a bitter falling out with Lafont, Marcel escapes to England, hoping to put the past behind him.  In England he encounters several French emigres: the large, brutish former soldier, M. Tolouse, the haughty Mlle. de Courteline, and the sheltered Mlle. Vallon.  As these traveling exiles are forced together, a young servant begins to intrigue them with a mysterious tale of love.  Can a simple love story, begun to entertain the weary travellers, hold the key to Marcel’s fate?
