It's the springtime of the people but you've never seen communists like these, hard-fighting, hard-drinking, mad, bad and dangerous to know. For Marx getting to the next bottle is struggle enough, so when the struggle needs him he turns to his trusty fall guy Engels to write the manifesto, outwit the police, outrun rebellious students, overcome ocean madness and fork out for Marx's ever-growing bar bill. It's a riotous road trip through the revolution of 1848 with scant regard shown for historical accuracy.
