In 1860s London, 10-year-old Oliver Twist dreams of savoring anything but the meager gruel he and his companion orphans endure for supper. Despite his pathetic meal, Oliver is overcome with hunger and dares to ask the indignant Mr. Bumble for more. He casts Oliver out of the orphanage. Bought by an undertaker, Oliver soon escapes deep into the heart of London, where he meets The Artful Dodger. Dodger introduces him to Fagin and his band of thieves. The following morning, Fagin sends the boys into the streets. While busy learning about pick-pocketing, Oliver is caught and arrested. Dodger tells Fagin and his ruthless cohort Bill Sykes of the arrest. Fearful that their gig is up, Fagin and Sykes run after him. Two weeks later, Oliver awakens in the arms of Mrs. Bedwin, elderly housekeeper to Mr. Brownlow. While peering over the balcony of the Brownlow residence, Oliver dreams of having a life with people who really love him. Meanwhile, cold-blooded Sykes makes plans for Oliver’s recapture. Will Oliver live to see his dreams come true?
