The streets of Victorian England come alive as young orphan Oliver first becomes the apprentice of an undertaker. When he escapes to London, he falls in among thieves led by the diabolical Fagin. When Oliver is captured, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the true love of a family.
