Portrays Paris in full flower at the turn of the 20th century, where creative dynamos such as Picasso, Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel, Gertrude Stein, Isadora Duncan set their respective circles on fire with their revolutionary visions and discoveries. But all was not well in this world, remembered in hindsight as a golden age, and wrenching struggles between Church and state and haves and have-nots shadowed these years, underscored by the drumbeat of the approaching Great War.
