In a ramshackle workhouse of a parish in England, a baby boy was born to a woman who died in child birth. The boy was named OLIVER TWIST. He spent a sad childhood in abject misery in various workhouses. At the age of twelve, he runs away to London where he is picked up by a notorious criminal Fagin, a mastermind at house breaking, pickpocketing and petty thievery. He teaches Oliver all these evil deeds. But a kind hearted gentleman robbed by Fagin, sympathizes with the plight of Oliver and helps him to find a family, his inheritance and above all Oliver’s true identity.
