The musical adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel is set in 19th century France. Released from 19 years of unjust imprisonment, Jean Valjean finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole to start a new life, initiating a life-long struggle for redemption. He is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways.
During the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of Marius, the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean's adopted daughter. His world-view shattered, Javert commits suicide and Valjean at last attains the peace he has sought for so long.
