Synopsis:

In 1833, the medical student and poet Georg Büchner leaves his lover Louise behind in Strasbourg and returns to his Hessian homeland.  There he becomes acquainted with a clergyman named Ludwig Weidig, who is the head of a revolutionary conspiracy.  They found the Society for Human Rights, writing the "Hessian National Messenger," a document of the Enlightenment for the masses, whom they wish to incorporate into their activities.  His friend Minnigerode and Weidig are then arrested, while the correspondingly fugitive Büchner flees to Louise in Strasbourg, where he finishes "Danton's Death."  But he still does not feel safe in Strasbourg and therefore goes to Zürich.  Büchner writes "Woyzeck," works as an academic and, on the 21st of February in 1837, perishes from typhoid fever at the age of 23.
