Description: After his defeat at Waterloo, Napoléon Bonaparte was exiled to the south Atlantic island of St. Helena, where he died a few years later. Or did he? Telling his story through a British lieutenant assigned to watch over Napoléon, film depicts the sordid antics of the inner circle of French Army officers who followed the emperor into exile and implies that Napoléon escaped St. Helena so cleverly that his escape has remained undiscovered to this day.
