"Hold your noise!" - are the first words the convict Abel Magwitch growls at Pip in "Great Expectations". But what were the events that led him to become this manacled man covered in blood and mud? The story begins with Magwitch in solitary confinement upon a Prison Hulk. Suffering from a fever, the convict dreams about a life gone by, from his first crime to his first love and the daughter he lost forever. Inspired by the Charles Dickens Novel "Great Expectations".
