One of Napoleon Bonaparte's greatest enemies returns from the dead after two centuries seeking justice for one of history's forgotten crimes. In this historically correct mystery/fantasy/biography we ponder a fateful decision in world history. Two dozen souls from the 19th Century -- all real people -- are summoned from their Afterlife perches to attend a gathering far away but the ensuing journeys leave them clueless as to where they are. Presented as a TV talk show, the souls explore the life and times of one Jean-Baptiste Bernadotte, an accomplished soldier, some-time republican and long-time rival of Bonaparte.
