The dire straits of the poor and destitute of 1850’s London is mirrored in the tragic lives of siblings Joe & Annie Cooper. As they are fighting in the streets for survival and reprieve from the deadly Cholera outbreak, Lord Shaftesbury is fighting in the House of Lords for the education of the ignorant, illiterate poor. As Lord Shaftesbury’s quest has a successful outcome, the Coopers are not so lucky. They’re the last of the unfortunate souls to slip through the fingers of necessary charity.
