Summary
In the dock of a British courtroom, French aristocrat Charles Darnay stands accused of spying. The outlook appears grim until some last-minute help comes from the mysterious Sydney Carton. Darnay goes free and makes plans to marry Lucie Manette. Carton keeps his love for her to himself, yet assures her that he would make the ultimate sacrifice for her. As the characters are swept into the maelstrom of the French Revolution, that long-ago promise will become Carton's last hope of redemption for his own soul
