Taking an immediate dislike to his nephew, Ralph employs Nicholas under the sadistic Mr. Squeers and his interminable wife, owners of a boys' school in northern England. In the meantime, Ralph seeks to use Nicholas' beautiful sister Kate as a ploy to influence his investors. Discourse forces Nicholas to flee the school with the crippled Smike, an orphan with no memories of his former life before he was brought to Dotheboys' Hall. On their journey back to London they meet up with Vincent Crummles and his acting troupe, befriend Ralph's good-hearted secretary Newman Noggs, and ultimately rise over adversity.
