"The film centers on Georges Danton ... the popular revolutionary leader, who returns to Paris at a time when the new Republic is in disarray. Maximilien Robespierre ... and his allies have set up a monstrous dictatorship, beginning the infamous "Reign of Terror." In direct opposition to the government and Robespierre, Danton pleads with the people for an end to the bloodshed which violates the spirit of their revolution. What begins as a public cause, soon turns into a personal conflict between Danton and Robespierre. Robespierre subsequently has Danton arrested for treason and France's one voice for peace faces the guillotine"--Cassette container
