Les Misérables is set in early 19th century France (post-French Revolution) in the years before and during the Paris Uprising and revolutionary upheaval. Jean Valjean (Simon Gleeson), is French peasant who seeks redemption after serving nineteen years imprisonment for the theft of a loaf of bread. He jumps parole and is pursued relentlessly by Javert (Hayden Tee), a police officer.
