How far will one man go for true love? Charles Dickens' epic love story comes alive in this exciting Masterpiece Theatre presentation, filmed on location in Bordeaux and Manchester.
In the dock of a British courtroom, French aristocrat Charles Darnay stands accused of spying for the King of France. The outlook appears grim until some last-minute help comes from his astonishing lookalike, Sydney Carton. As Darnay goes free and makes plans to marry Lucie Manette, Carton keeps his secret desire for her to himself, yet assures her that he would make the ultimate sacrifice for her, "or for anyone you love." As Lucie and Charles settle into blissful married life in London, the French Revolution is exploding. Carton is in Paris on his own mysterious business just as the Darnays return to rescue a faithful servant from the chaos, only to be captured by a crowd thirsty for the blood of aristocrats. The guillotine beckons as does the promise Sydney made to his beloved Lucie years earlier. Amidst the turmoil of one of history's most barbaric eras, will one man's simple devotion be enough to quell the madness?
