Candide, the bastard cousin of Baron Thunder-Ten-Tonck, is expelled from home, dragged into the Bulgarian army, brought before the Spanish Inquisition, swindled out of a fortune, shipwrecked on a desert isle and separated time and again from his true love, Cunegonde. She, too, bears a barrage of misfortunes, including – but not limited to – sale into prostitution, forced marriage to an exorbitantly wealthy man and slavery.
