After the Franco-Prussian War and the siege of 1870-71 , the St Clair family return to Paris, seeking refuge and security, only to be swept up into the terrible cruelties and violence of the Commune . Here their young daughter, Helene , falls ill and in an unlucky twist of fate, becomes separated from her family. Alone and frightened, she has to fend for herself on the war-torn streets.
