Based on Voltaire's satirical masterpiece, CANDIDE tells the story a young man, Candide, who is determined to follow his instructor's creed of mindless optimism. Even after being banished from his homeland, captured by Bulgarians, beaten and left for dead by the Spanish Inquisition, robbed of everything he owns, and torn repeatedly from the woman he loves, Candide still clings to the philosophy that everything is for the best in this, "the best of all possible worlds." He and his friends eventually find themselves in a cave in Turkestan, seeking guidance from the Wisest Man in the World--a ghost from their past who has a surprising revelation for them!
