The story follows the life of 19th feminist-socialist Flora Tristan in her quest to persuade working people of Europe to create a working union, doing so by speaking idealistic speeches and writing revolutionary books. This tour --through cities of France and Spain, mostly--leads to flashbacks in the narrative which show her past life as an abused wife, outcast daughter and apprentice of the utopian ideas of her time.
