Synopsis

In the mid-1800s, the Industrial Revolution has created an age of both new prosperity and new problems. Researcher and radical Karl Marx and his wife Jenny, are on the road to exile. In Paris they meet young Friedrich Engels, the well-to-do son of a factory owner whose studies have exposed the poor wages and worse conditions of the new English working class who enrich their owners while punishing laborers. Together, through censorship, riots and political upheavals, they preside over the birth of the labor movement, turning unorganized idealists into a united force. Against all expectations, two brilliantly insolent men, who were ostracized for their beliefs, bridge the industrial era with modern ideologies that respect the working class, instead of enslaving them.
