from: wikipedia

In 1815, convict Jean Valjean

is released on parole by prison guard Javert after serving a nineteen-year sentence for stealing a loaf of bread and numerous escape attempts. Valjean is driven out of every town, because of his paroled status. He is offered food and shelter by the Bishop of Digne , but steals his silver during the night. He is captured by the authorities, but the Bishop informs them that the silver was given as a gift, then gives him even more, securing Valjean's release. Moved by the Bishop's grace, Valjean breaks his parole, vowing to start an honest life helping others under a new identity. Javert swears he will bring the escaped convict to justice.

Eight years later, in 1823 Valjean has become a factory owner and mayor of Montreuil-sur-Mer. Fantine , one of his workers, is discovered to be sending money to her illegitimate daughter, Cosette , who lives with the unscrupulous Thénardiers  and their daughter Éponine , and is dismissed by the foreman. In a desperate attempt to support her daughter, she sells her hair and teeth, eventually becoming a prostitute. She is arrested by Javert after she attacks an abusive customer, but is saved by Valjean, who has her hospitalized. Later, Valjean learns that a man believed to be him has been arrested. Unable to accept that an innocent man is condemned in his place, Valjean reveals his identity to the court at the man's trial. Returning to the hospital, he promises the dying Fantine he will look after her daughter. Javert arrives to take Valjean into custody, but after a brief confrontation, Valjean jumps into a river to escape. He pays the Thénardiers to allow him to take Cosette, and promises to be like a father to her. Valjean and Cosette flee to Paris.

Nine years later, in 1832, there is increasing poverty in Paris. Jean Maximilien Lamarque, the only government official sympathetic towards the poor, is nearing death; therefore a large group of teenage revolutionary students, known as the Friends of the ABC, plan a rebellion against the French monarchy. The students consist of Marius Pontmercy , Enjolras , Gavroche , Courfeyrac , and Joly.

Marius later catches a glimpse of Cosette , now a young woman, and instantly falls in love with her. Meanwhile, despite Cosette's questioning, Valjean refuses to talk about his past or her mother. At a wine shop, Enjolras organises a group of idealistic students as Lamarque's death is announced.

Meanwhile, Éponine , Marius' friend, leads him to Cosette, where the two profess their love for one another. Lamenting that her secret love for Marius will never be reciprocated, Éponine fatalistically decides to join the revolution.

When a gang led by Thénardier attempts to capture Valjean for ransom to Javert, Éponine screams to warn Valjean and Cosette; Valjean decides to flee, unaware of Cosette's desire for Marius. As they leave, Enjolras rallies the Parisians to revolt, and Marius sends a farewell letter to Cosette. The next day, the students interrupt Lamarque's funeral procession and begin their revolt. Javert poses as a rebel in order to spy on them, but is quickly exposed by Gavroche and captured. During the ensuing gunfight, Éponine saves Marius at the cost of her own life, professing her love to him before she dies in his arms. Valjean, intercepting the letter from Marius to Cosette, goes to the barricade to protect Marius. After saving Enjolras from a sniper, he is allowed to execute Javert. However, when the two are alone, Valjean frees Javert instead, telling him to run as he fires his pistol at a wall to convince the students he killed him.

With the Parisians not joining the revolution as the students expected, they resolve to fight to the death. Everyone is killed but Marius, who is saved when Valjean drags his unconscious body into the sewers. Thénardier, scavenging the dead bodies, steals Marius's ring. Valjean escapes the sewers carrying Marius, but is confronted at the exit by Javert. Valjean begs for one last hour to take Marius to a doctor; Javert initially refuses and threatens to shoot him if he does not give up. Valjean ignores him and leaves to save Marius. Unable to reconcile the conflict between his civil and moral duties, two things which he always considered the same, Javert jumps to his death into the Seine.

Later, Marius mourns for his friends but Cosette comforts him. Revealing his past to Marius, Valjean tells him he must leave because his presence endangers Cosette. Marius reluctantly accepts Valjean's decision to leave, and promises that he will not tell Cosette the truth. Marius and Cosette marry; the Thénardiers crash the reception and testify they saw Valjean carrying a murdered corpse through the sewers. Thénardier unwittingly shows Marius the ring that he stole from him as "proof". Recognising the ring, Marius realises it was Valjean who saved his life. Told of Valjean's location by Thénardier, Marius and Cosette depart to find him. As Valjean sits dying in a local convent, he perceives Fantine's spirit arriving to take him to Heaven. Cosette and Marius rush in to bid farewell. Valjean hands Cosette his confession of his past life and joins the spirits of the Bishop, Fantine, Enjolras, Éponine, Gavroche, Courfeyrac, Joly and the other rebels who fought at the barricades.
