In a world where the few have and the many have not, Ebenezer Scrooge is a mean miser with money on his mind.

An unscrupulous loan-shark preying on the desperation of the poor, he sows 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 fate in a night that promises he will never be the same again.

 
 
OH BUT HE WAS A TIGHT-FISTED HAND AT THE GRINDSTONE, SCROOGE! A SQUEEZING, WRENCHING, GRASPING, SCRAPING, CLUTCHING COVETOUS OLD SINNER!

Some people laughed to see the change in him, but he let them laugh; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter.
