As one of his eight children, Charles looks up to his father and shares a close relationship with him. As time goes on, John is confronted with the fact that he cannot financially support his family, and Charles' idolized father begins to fall from his pedestal. John gets a transfer to London in the hopes of improving their situation, but as they slip further into debt and encounter hassles with creditors, they are forced to re-evaluate their position.
