Oliver Twist tells the beloved story of a young orphan born into the grimmest of 19th century English workhouses, faced with a life of grinding poverty ahead of him. Despite this, Oliver is a fighter and after being evicted from the workhouse for asking for "more" and surviving a stint as an undertaker's assistant, he walks many miles to London and finds a whole new life with a gang of young pickpockets led by the Artful Dodger and their guardian Fagin.

Oliver's adventures are only beginning as he finds his way into the home of wealthy Mr. Brownlow, but even there he is not safe, for Fagin and the dangerous thief Bill Sikes seek to snatch him back and lead him deeper into a life of crime. Only Nancy, Bill Sikes' girlfriend, can ensure Oliver's safety, even if that puts her own life at risk.
