He grows up in the workhouse, and the horrors of his childhood seem all the worse.

In London, Oliver is brought into the gang of thieves and trained as a pickpocket. When he goes out on his first job, he runs away and is almost sent to prison. However, the kindness of the person who was robbed, saves him from the terrors of the city gaol, and instead he is taken into the philanthropic gentleman's home.

The job goes wrong and Oliver is shot and left behind....
