The homeless boy Oliver Twist lives a hard life. He is thrown between people and new situations, hope and despair. As soon as a friendly soul emerges, something forces him back down to the bottom. But even there is warmth and goodness, albeit in ambiguous form. Like the incarnate Nancy, who risks her life to help Oliver. And the raw skin Fagin, leader of the criminal gang that Oliver is tricked into. Who can be trusted?
