The Life and Adventure of Nick Nickleby
After the death of his father, Nick Nickleby, his sister Kat, and his mother are left homeless. Nick has to take his family to London to seek help from his wealthy but corrupt Uncle Ralph, who attempts to use Kat to lure a lecherous businessman and banishes Nick to work at the abusive Dotheolds care home.
Rescuing the enigmatic Mrs Smike, Nick sets out to right his uncle’s wrongs, save his family, and stop his new found love, Madhi, from going through with a marriage of convenience.
The gritty world Nick finds himself in is modern day but the shadows of Dickens’ world still linger.
