Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist as he navigates Victorian London, searching for a home, a family, and – most importantly – for love. When Oliver is befriended on the street by the mischievous Artful Dodger, he is welcomed into a gang of child pickpockets led by the conniving, but charismatic, Fagin. When Oliver is falsely accused of a theft he didn’t commit, he is rescued by a kind and wealthy gentleman, to the dismay of Fagin’s malevolent sidekick, Bill Sikes. Caught in the middle is the warm-hearted Nancy, who is trapped under Bill’s thumb, but desperate to help Oliver to escape his life of hard-ship and set him up for a prosperous future.
