Summary
Paris, 1895: Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish army officer, is convicted of treason, stripped of his rank, and sentenced to a lifetime of hard labor on Devil's Island, French Guiana. Ordered to investigate the case on behalf of the military's new counter-espionage force, Colonel Georges Picquart uncovers evidence of anti-Semitism as well as a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the government. Inspired by the events of the Dreyfus Affair, a real-life political scandal that engulfed Europe in the late 19th century, this gripping tale brings history to life. -- Description by Gillian Speace
