Synopsis:
After 19 years as a prisoner, Jean Valjean is freed by Javert, the officer in charge of the prison workforce. Valjean promptly breaks parole but later uses money from stolen silver to reinvent himself as a mayor and factory owner. Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison. Eight years later, Valjean becomes the guardian of a child named Cosette after her mother’s death, but Javert’s relentless pursuit means that peace will be a long time coming.

• Jean Valjean, a morally conflicted paroled convict, prisoner 24601, and the protagonist. Failing to find work with his yellow parole note and redeemed by the Bishop of Digne’s mercy, he tears his passport up and conceals his identity (under the alias “Monsieur Madeleine” and later “Monsieur Fauchelevant”) in order to live his life again as an honest man. However, Javert constantly pursues him;
• Fantine, a struggling single mother who becomes a street prostitute in order to pay for her child’s well-being;
• Javert, a willful police inspector, originally a prison-guard, who becomes obsessed with hunting down Valjean to whom he refers as “Prisoner 24601”;
• Éponine, the young daughter of the sinister Thénardiers who was pampered and spoiled as a child but grows up to be ragged in Paris. She secretly loves Marius;
• Cosette, Fantine’s daughter, who is abused and mistreated by the Thénardiers but whom Valjean later adopts – she soon grows into a beautiful young woman;
• Marius Pontmercy, a French student and revolutionary who falls in love with Cosette;
• Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, a crooked couple who own an inn and exploit their customers. They later become a feared band of thieves in the streets of Paris;
• Enjolras, leader of the student revolutionaries who seek to bring revolution and change to France;
• Gavroche, a hotheaded young boy who is adored by the people and aligns himself with their revolution – he is a true symbol of the youth and boldness of the rebellion.
• Grantaire a revolutionary who doesn’t believe in the causes of the revolution. He reveres Enjolras, and is often drunk.
