Paris, 1791. Marie Antoinette is held captive in the Tuileries. She begins a correspondence with Axel de Fersen, a young count she met nearly twenty years earlier at a ball. Their exchanges are cordial, political…and censored. Were they lovers? Were they plotting a royal rescue? The rumors are endless, but no one can say for sure. Until now. This fascinating documentary follows the team of chemists, cryptographers and historians who through amazing new scientific techniques and hours of careful study have finally managed to fully decipher the letters between the dethroned queen and the dashing count. What they discover is the love story we already know ends in doom, but that is still full of hope, passion and breathtaking romance.
