2 hr. 8 min.
Fresh from seeing his army defeated at the Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon Bonaparte (Philippe Torreton) is in a jail cell on the British-controlled island of St. Helena. Sir Hudson Lowe (Richard E. Grant), the region's governor, is given the task of ensuring the French leader does not escape. However, because Napoleon still has a collection of devoted officers, and it is rumored that he's plotting his getaway, keeping him in captivity proves a complicated task for Lowe.
