“Mankind was my business.  The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance and benevolence were all my business.”

“Oh but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge!  A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching covetous old sinner!”

The Story

In a world where the few have and the many have not, Ebenezer Scrooge is a hoarder with just one thing on his mind – gain.  An unscrupulous money-lender who preys on the desperation of the poor, he sews loans to those who can ill afford them, and harvests debts at a plentiful rate.  Callous and crooked, Scrooge cares nothing for the lives he ruins along the way, until one Christmas Eve he is brought face to face with his destiny, in a night that promises he will never be the same again.

“He let them laugh, and little heeded them, for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened, for good, on this globe at which some people did not have their fill of laughter”
