Que la fete commence
France, 1719: The Regent, Philippe d Orléans reigns over the country ever since King Louis XIV's death four years earlier. Both libertarian and libertine, Philippe fights daily with his consistently conflicting moral views and is torn between his concern for the people's plight and the country's impending bankruptcy while unable to appease either.
