Having just finished the Statue of Liberty, Gustave Eiffel is at the peak of his career. He is then encouraged by the French government to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair. Eiffel simply wants to design the subway, but everything changes when he crosses paths with a mysterious woman from his past (Emma Mackey). Their long lost, forbidden passion inspires him to build the iconic Eiffel Tower.
“Played by Romain Duris, Gustave contends with naysayers, striking workers and financial setbacks as he commandeers the grand effort to construct the Eiffel Tower.” — Beatrice Loayza, New York Times
