Quick pitch

Paris, France; 2014. The government is not the government we know today, but rather a mirror of the bourbon restoration. Oppression by the monarchy has been underway for decades. The separation of classes is great - those who are rich are very rich, and those who are poor are very poor. Tensions run high among the people. Unrest is widespread. The winds of change look to turn the tide in the form of a group of students who intend to dismantle the system one damned brick at a time, if that’s what it takes. These are our revolutionaries. Some call them domestic terrorists. Some call them FRIENDS.

Out. I have to ... I have to plan. Consider the meeting adjourned, talk among yourselves, or -- don't, I really don't care. Vive la revolution.

Commotion. Outside, gunshots can be heard, and the shouts of both revolutionaries and national guardsmen, and the cries of the dying. Morning light filters in through one open window, washing over the form of a drunkard. His dark hair is matted, his head turned and cheek laid upon his folded arms in slumber. He doesn't seem bothered by the commotion outside, unaware ... he doesn't stir. Little does he know of what is to come, because this drunkard's name is GRANTAIRE, and his borrowed time is up.

I want you to remember the way it looks when the life leaves my eyes.

From the cavern of the stairwell behind the line of national guardsmen stands the cynic, risen by chance and purpose. GRANTAIRE stands as a drunkard reborn; not in the light of any God, but rather by the witness of ENJOLRAS, whose conviction has never faltered in his sight. Their eyes meet briefly.
