In the beginning Candide is kicked out from home, sadly and unwilling he must get out of his comfortable elite environment and so he starts his wandering around the world hoping that he once again meets his love Cunégonde and his master Pangloss, who taught him to be an optimist at all costs. While he is struggling to find someone to give him a helping hand in the cold winter in the German countryside, he has flashbacks on his late bubble-life. He is soon forced into the army, then flees to Amsterdam to find a job. There he meets with his master Pangloss in very bad health condition, but he is brave enough to save him.Then they embark on a sailing trip to Lisboa, where they end up in big trouble. Pangloss seems to be executed and Candide can hardly make it to a hideout. He is helped by the old woman who cures his wounds and leads him to Cunégonde. Candide’s love for Cunégonde is the driving force throughout his journey. The absurd actions of Candide to pursue his love, including abandoning the paradise of El Dorado, committing multiple murders, and barely avoiding capture and execution several times, are mocked by the reality that once Candide can marry Cunégonde, he’s no longer attracted to her. The series then evolves to a more philosophical ending, where all three protagonists are looking for a final conclusion to define happiness for themselves after being through so many unbelievable adventures.
