Lafayette: The Lost Hero tells the exciting story of this neglected and controversial figure and his quest to bring democracy to America and France. He left home at the age of 19 to fight courageously for the independence of the United States, and went back in 1781 to fight in vain for democratic reform in France. But when he revisited the US for the fiftieth anniversary of our revolution, he was welcomed as an American hero. An Oren Jacoby film.
