Young Nicholas and his family have enjoyed a comfortable life... until now. Nicholas' father dies, 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 break up the family and exploit them, and Nicholas is sent to work as a teacher at a school run by the cruel, abusive, and horridly entertaining Wackford Squeers. Eventually, Nicholas runs away with his new friend Smike, and the two set off on an adventure to find and reunite the Nickleby family.
Based on the novel by Charles Dickens.
