Here's the official synopsis:
Oliver Twist is propelled into present day London in an energetic, high-concept, modern twist in 3D.
Seventeen year old “Olly” falls in with an organised street gang in London who use Parkour to carry out daring art heists for shady stolen goods dealer Fagin.
Spectacular Parkour set pieces – as well as bike-Parkour, skateboarding, jump rope skipping, car chases, bike chases, lots of running, jumping, vaulting and sheer unadulterated energy – are seamlessly woven with traditional Dickensian themes of love, temptation and danger. Add a soundtrack to rival Streetdance 3D and a familiar cast of colourful characters – Bill Sikes, Mr Bumble and 19 year old Nancy, a skilled parkourist in her own right – to create a truly iconic reimagining of the classic novel to coincide with the bicentenary of Dickens’ birth in 2012.
