In a world torn between renaissance and genocide, a womanizing artist uncovers more than the nudes he captures on canvas, when he finds love that changes his life and risks it all in a fight for civil liberty. The true story that sparked both French and American Revolutions and laid the ideals for the U.S. Constitution.
Inspired by a notorious and almost forgotten true story, set in a time when a thirst for knowledge and speaking your mind can literally lead to the loss of your head.
Although action packed, “Rebirth” also touches the heart of humanity. With its Universal themes of honor, courage, faith, facing our own mortality, and of a precious bond we all share for the love for life and liberty, of protecting our families and leaving a legacy. “Rebirth” reminds us of the perils of unbridled power and inspires us to never lose sight of the true and timeless power of love and honor. http://www.tllewis.net
