An orphan and his pickpocket companion are confined inside a workhouse to await trial for a crime they did not commit. This is the continuing love story of Oliver Twist and The Artful Dodger.
After a blissful seaside interlude, Oliver and Jack are arrested for theft and sent to Axminster Workhouse to await trial. They are put in the less-than-tender care of Workmaster Chalenheim, who controls the work they do, the amount of food they eat, and the punishments they must endure.
Oliver struggles with the shame of being in a place he thought he’d left behind him long ago. Meanwhile, Jack is confronted by a predator who tests the limits of Jack’s love for Oliver. Together they must find a way to escape the workhouse before they succumb to the harsh conditions or are separated by the hangman’s noose, whichever comes first.
