He meets two people who will have a great impact on his future: an escaped convict from a prison ship destined to Australia and Estella, a young girl who lives with Miss Havisham in a dusty falling down old mansion. After several years, Pip receives tremendous news: a secret benefactor has decided to fund his becoming a gentleman and Pip promptly moves to London where he shares rooms with Mr. Pocket and learns to become a man of great expectations, all on the £250 per year he receives from his benefactor. He also becomes a snob however, something that shames him later on. As he learns the identity of his secret benefactor, he also learns the true meaning of joy and life. Based on the classic novel by Charles Dickens.
