Pip lives with his cruel sister and her kind husband until the day he meets the wild convict Magwich. His moment of adventure over, his life continues on normally until he pays a visit to Miss Havisham, her gloomy house, her lavishly set moldy spread, and her beautiful adopted daughter, Estella. And when an anonymous person gives him money to become a gentleman in London, Pip isn't sure what his expectations for his life are.
As a small boy at Joe Gargery's forge, Pip meets two people who will affect his whole life - an escaped convict he is forced to help, and the eccentric Miss Havisham, whose beautiful, cold ward Estella young Pip adores. But when a secret benefactor pays for him to go to London to become a gentleman, Pip never dreams he will meet the dreadful convict Magwitch again, nor just how wrong his expectations are . . .
