             an unjustly imprisoned physician, in Paris and bring him .
             back to England. Lucie, Manette's daughter who thought that .
             he was dead, accompanied Mr. Lorry. Upon arriving at .
             Defarge's wine shop in Paris, they found Mr. Manette in a .
             very bad state and took him back to London with them. .
             In 1780, five years later, Lucie, Mr. Lorry and Dr. .
             Manette were called to testify against Charles Darnay, a .
             tutor who made constant trips between France and England .

             when a lawyer, named Sydney Carton, looked much like him .
             and an eye witness faltered to positively distinguish .
             between them. .

             full swing, Darnay decided to go to France to save a family .
             servant. Upon his arrival, he was immediately jailed. Lucie .

             yet he was re-jailed the same day by Madame Defarge because .

             death. .
             Manette went back into his demented state with .
             hopelessness. Carton arrived in Paris and heard a plot to .
             also kill Lucie and Dr.
