The story of a journey made by Little Nell, a fourteen-year-old girl and her grandfather, the proprietor of the eponymous shop. We follow them and their journey through England as they run from the evil moneylender, Quilp, who seeks the money he lent to the grandfather as investment, but whose addiction to gambling has brought about his ruin. Quilp wants revenge and he wants Little Nell. The journey takes them through various trials for her and temptations for the grandfather, and on the journey, they meet with a mixture of kindness and ill fortune and some of the most wonderful characters drawn from the imagination of Charles Dickens.
