A TALE OF TWO CITIES

The year 1775 is an age of many contradictions, an extraordinary period. France is prosperous, unlike England where chaos rules. Cruel acts are performed in the name of Christianity.

Armed men perform burglaries day and night. Families hide their furniture in warehouses if they are going out of town. Traders turn out to be criminals, who attack their fellow traders. Robbers intercept and steal the mail. Prisoners riot against their guards. Thieves steal from nobleman in daylight. Gunmen and ordinary people fight each other for stolen goods. These acts are so common that executions are never ending.

There is a man named Charles Darnay who is accused of secretly giving France a list of England's battle plans for the past five years. As his lawyers asks the witnesses, a man throws a note at him. To everyone's surprise, Charles and another man named Sydney Carton - despite looking ragged and dirty - are look-alikes.

Charles Darnay and Sydney Carton may look the same and may love the same woman but their personalities are very different. Sydney does not like Charles because Sydney envies him. But when Charles' own life is endangered, Sydney tries to help him.
