Young Nicholas Nickleby, penniless after his father’s death, arrives in London seeking a way to care for his mother and sister. Their only hope is the Scrooge-like Uncle Ralph, who sends Nicholas away to work at a school for boys. Finding the conditions there abusive, he rescues the orphan Smike and together they embark on an unforgettable adventure, encountering the best and worst of humanity and learning lessons of compassion, loyalty and resilience.
