    The plight of the homeless and the impoverished is examined through the eyes of abandoned and abused children in mid-19th century London. A cobbler and a philanthropic Earl struggle against the ignorance of the poor, the indifference of the rich and the unforgiving wheels of blind justice to educate and improve the fortunes of 13-year old Joe Cooper and the other "Ragged Children" of London.
