In the movie "A Tale of Two Cities" Jarvis Lorry, an .
employee of Tellson's Bank, was sent to find Dr. Manette, .
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 .
and was thus accused of treason, but Darnay was acquitted .
when a lawyer, named Sydney Carton, looked much like him .
and an eye witness faltered to positively distinguish .
between them. .
Carton loved Lucie but he was a drunk. Knowing that their .
relationship was hopeless, he stated that he would .
sacrifice himself for her or anyone she loved in an .
emotional conversation. Darnay ended up marrying Lucie. .
Darnay's uncle, the Marquiuis St. Evremonde, was .
assassinated by the father of a child he ran over and .
Darnay inherited the title, Marquiuis St. Evermonde, Now .
along with this title came power. Darnay would not take it .
because he did not want to exploit the French people as his .
uncle did. Around 1790, while the French Revolution was in .
full swing, Darnay decided to go to France to save a family .
servant. Upon his arrival, he was immediately jailed. Lucie .
and Dr. Manette soon showed up in Paris at the doorstep of .
Tellson's French office, where Lorry already was present. .
Dr. Manette managed to get Darnay released after a year, .
yet he was re-jailed the same day by Madame Defarge because .
his family, the Evremondes, had previously killed off her .
family. Darnay was tried the next day and sentenced to .
Manette went back into his demented state with .
hopelessness. Carton arrived in Paris and heard a plot to .
also kill Lucie and Dr.
