London, 1850s.

After five years in an Australian penal colony, the Artful Dodger returns to London in search of a hidden fortune.

He finds the city a changed place from his youth: with law and order upheld by a new police force, Fagin gone to the gallows, his old gang scattered and danger around every corner.
