The revolutionary tribunal has condemned Andrea Chénier to death. His fate is immutable. Shortly before his execution, Chénier is visited by his lover Maddalena, who has resolved to die at the poet's side. With their final words, the lovers vow, "May our death be love's triumph." 

The French Revolution, a movement initially driven by the people, evolves from 1789 into an instrument of terror. Citizens are monitored by regime spies, show trials serve as a deterrent and the guillotine ensures justice is swiftly administered. Although Chénier, on the run from the authorities, could flee the city of Paris, he decides against it. He needs to know who is behind the secretly delivered letters. Here, in the shadow of a terrifying regime, love triumphs. Chénier and Maddalena find each other, declare their mutual love and remain faithful until their dying breath.
