Synopsis
A tale based on the classic novel, "The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby" by Charles Dickens. Set in 19th Century England, the story revolves around the resourceful Nicholas Nickleby and his beloved family, as their world changes dramatically when tragedy strikes. The Nicklebys have always enjoyed a comfortable life; however when Nicholas' father dies, they are left penniless and are forced to leave their lives behind. Subsequently, Nicholas, his sister and mother journey to London to live with their Uncle Ralph, whom they soon discover is wicked. Uncle Ralph plots demonic machinations to scatter them apart from each other. Nicholas is sent away to work as a teacher at a school run by a cruel headmaster named Wackford Squeers; however, he eventually runs away with one of his students, Smike, on a mission to protect his family. Nicholas makes every attempt to reunite the Nickleby family--against all odds.
