The young Karl Marx is sent on exile with his wife. In 1844 in Paris, he meets Friedrich Engels, the son of an industrialist, who has witnessed the birth of the English proletariat. The fragile and mild-mannered Engels fills in the missing piece in the puzzle of Marx’s new outlook of the world. Amidst censorship, police raids, riots and political turmoil, they will lead the birth of the workers’ movement that that hat never been well organized and permanent until then. Led by the two bright, defiantly brave, extremely smart young men, the workers’ movement will evolve into the most solid theoretical and political transformation since the Renaissance.
