Les Lignes de Wellington =: Lines of Wellington

This lavish, star-studded epic set during The Napoleonic Wars of 1810 chronicles a multitude of characters--soldiers and civilians, men, women and children, young and old--as their everyday lives are torn apart by war.

The idealistic young lieutenant Pedro de Alencar; Clarissa Warren, the malicious little English girl; the shady dealer Penabranca; the vindictive Sergeant Francisco Xavier; and the lusty prostitute Martrio will all follow different paths to the lines of Torres, where the final battle will decide each of their fates.
