Everyone knows d’Artagnan, the blazing hero out of Alexnadre Dumas’ iconic romantic historical drama “The Three Musketeers” and his world-renowned moto “All for one and one for all”. But behind this adventurous hero from late 19th century popular literature, hides a real life character: Charles de Batz de Castelmore.

As a tribute to Dumas - who died 150 years ago - the film confronts fiction and history by revealing the prolific life of this impetuous Gascon whose adventures inspired the legend of cloak and sword! A life’s journey crossing the path of famous Cardinal Mazarin before becoming Louis XIV’s righthand man immersed in the geopolitical plots of seventeenth century Europe.
