Classic drama. Manipulated by Javert, Jean Valjean is ready to turn himself in, but he makes a promise to Fantine that changes everything.

Tormented Jean Valjean is forced by Javert and his own conscience to reveal his true identity. He is arrested and Javert believes he has got his man for good this time. Valjean breaks free from the guards to find Fantine in the infirmary. Valjean makes a vow to her, to find her daughter Cosette, before he is imprisoned once again.

Jean Valjean does not forget his duty to poor Fantine. He makes his way to Montfermeil to find Cosette and manages to take her from the cruel Thenardiers. They flee to Paris, where they begin a new life, but Valjean remains anxious they could be discovered.

Javert, now a police officer in Paris, gets wind of a missing girl in Montfermeil and goes out to investigate it on a hunch. Confronted by Javert, Thenardier inadvertently leads his family into misfortune. Javert's leads take him back to Paris. When he is tipped off to some new information he believes he is close to another opportunity to take down the elusive Valjean.
