Adapted from a Charles Dickens novel, this is a story of young Nicholas and his family, who have enjoyed a comfortable life. That is, until Nicholas' father dies and the family is left penniless, and Nicholas, his sister and mother venture to London to seek help from their Uncle Ralph. Unfortunately, Ralph's only intentions are to brak up the family and exploit them, and Nicholas is sent to a school run by the cruel, abusive and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers. Eventually, Nicholas runs away with schoolmate Smike, and the two set off to reunite the Nickleby family.
