David Copperfield (Dev Patel) is raised by his loving widowed mother.
When she remarries, David is kicked out by his ghastly stepfather. He embarks on an odyssey through Victorian England, meeting some of the most eccentric characters ever. During this quest for family, friendship, love, and status, he also gathers plenty of brilliant material for his autobiography.
