The greatest dream of eighteenth-century sculptor Marie Tussaud is to attract the attention of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI ; their stamp of approval on her work could catapult her and her wax museum to the fame and riches she desires. After months of anticipation, Marie learns that the royal family is willing to come and see their likenesses. When they do, the king's sister is so impressed that she requests Marie's presence at Versailles as a royal tutor in wax sculpting. Thus, Marie is introduced to a glamorous world that is entirely different from her home on the Boulevard du Temple, where people are selling their teeth in order to put food on the table. Meanwhile, many resent the vast separation between rich and poor. In salons and cafés across Paris, people are lashing out against the monarchy. Soon, there's whispered talk of revolution. Will Marie be able to hold on to her friendship with the royal family as France approaches civil war? More important, will she be able to fulfill the demands
