The French royalty's indulgences have taken their toll on the common folk. While nobles live in opulence, children starve in the streets. Counts and countesses attend masquerade balls as families unable to afford medicine are forced to bury their loved ones. What were once pleas for equality are now enraged demands for radical change...
Just as the times have changed, so has Oscar's heart. Looking to challenge herself further, Oscar leaves the Queen's side. She enlists with the French Guards, common soldiers who put their lives on the line every night as they patrol the streets and keep the peace. However, Oscar soon finds that an anti-noble sentiment resides everywhere, even amongst the guards that grudgingly follow her orders.
As the flames of revolution begin to spread, she soon finds herself torn between her loyalty to the crown and her loyalty to France itself.
