At the time of the French Revolution, beginning in 1789, committed revolutionaries were sent by the new French government to the Caribbean to incite revolution among slaves in the colonies there. This drama tells the story of three of these agitators, who have been sent to British Jamaica. One of them is an aristocrat, the grandson of a prominent rum manufacturer. One of the other two men is more radical than he is, and they disagree about methods when a black slave kills his overseer in order to incite a rebellion.
