An abandoned set of crutches. Tiny Tim in training to run the marathon. A chance to inspire millions, unless...somebody already has that job. With the powers-that-be backing Oliver Twist, once lowly orphan and now panic attack-ridden pitchman for juicers and cereal who is forced to endlessly reenact his walk to London and his days in the workhouse--and the homicidal trio of Cinderella, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood on the loose--Tiny Tim may not make it to the starting line.
