Explores that famous, brief, romantic, and tragic period when poor and working-class Parisians rose up against the "bourgeois" French national government, which fled the capital and re-established itself in Versailles. As the historical drama unfolds, it is also "covered" by two television news crews - one from "National TV Versailles" which broadcasts the official version and the other from "Commune TV," giving voice to the rebellious Communards.
