Alexandre Dumas, author of ‘The Three Musketeers’ and many other works, his father General Thomas Dumas of the French Dragoons and his grandfather The Maquis Alexandre Antoine Davy de la Palleterie, collectively known in this presentation as The Three Dumas, each experienced their full share of both triumph and tragedy.

Through peering deeper into their rarely acknowledged lives we will show through a drama-documentive film how their amazing escapades and experiences became the foil for some of Alexandre Dumas greatest literary works.
