Based on the novel by Henry James, THE AMBASSADORS follows straight-laced magazine editor Lambert Strether, as he leaves Boston in 1906 on a mission: to bring back his friend’s wayward son, Chad, from Belle Epoque Paris. He finds Chad, but also discovers Paris culture and a world of artists and aristocrats that make him question whether he has missed out on a more fulfilling life. Rather than persuade Chad to return, Strether stays on in Paris and opens himself to life and love. But in doing so, he also becomes an unwitting pawn in Chad’s game of deception, passion and betrayal that will change his life forever.
