Flashing back intermittently to dream-like scenes from his hardscrabble rural childhood, "Ray" chronicles Ray Charles' remarkable rise from sideman and Chitlin Circuit fixture to innovator, icon, and international superstar. Yet even as Charles ascends to the heights of the musical and cultural elite, he remains hobbled by heroin addiction and compulsive womanizing, a prisoner to his own insatiable needs. Through it all, Ray Charles possessed a rock-solid confidence in his music, a statement of faith in the inclusiveness of American culture. Ray Charles made a place for himself in the America of the '40s and '50s, and promptly transcended the barriers that defined what that place was. He incorporated and encompassed R & B, soul, rock and roll, blues, jazz, country, pop, gospel--all American music--giving us the lush sounds he had always heard in his head, unifying America's disparate musical bits into a cohesive whole

Trama: Inghilterra, prima metà dell'Ottocento. Il piccolo orfano Oliver Twist è ospite di uno squallido istituto diretto dal perfido mister Bumble fin da quando la madre, morta per le conseguenze del parto, lo ha messo al mondo. Compiuti i nove anni, Oliver è affidato, dietro compenso dell'orfanotrofio, alla famiglia Sowerberry, alla ricerca di un apprendista di bottega. I continui contrasti con Noah Claypole, un altro apprendista, le vessazioni e i violenti disaccordi con i membri della nuova famiglia, lo obbligano a fuggire verso Londra. Qui, appena arrivato, irretito dall'offerta di un posto dove dormire, entra a far parte della banda di ladruncoli organizzati da un uomo senza scrupoli dall'aspetto orripilante, l'oscuro Fagin. Oliver viene arrestato durante un colpo andato male ai danni di mister Brownlow, benché il ruolo del trovatello nel corso del furto sia del tutto marginale. Vista la situazione, Oliver è dapprima scagionato, poi accolto da Brownlow nella sua dimora. Per la prima volta l'orfano è trattato con affetto e rispetto. Qualche tempo dopo, tuttavia, Nancy e il violento Billy Sykes, appartenenti alla banda di Fagin, lo riacciuffano e lo riconducono dal capo proprio quando Oliver ha ricevuto un incarico di fiducia dal signor Brownlow, il quale rimane molto deluso a causa di quella che crede una fuga da parte del ragazzo. Sykes intende utilizzare Oliver per compiere una rapina a casa di Brownlow, ma la rapina fallisce. Il ragazzo rimane ferito ad una spalla e condotto da Fagin, dopo aver rischiato di essere gettato in un fiume da Sykes Temendo per la sorte di Oliver, Nancy avverte il signor Brownlow e per questo è uccisa dallo stesso Sykes, sulle cui tracce si trova ormai la polizia. Il crudele criminale tenta un'ultima disperata fuga sui tetti usando Oliver come ostaggio, ma la sua fuga ha presto termine con un'accidentale impiccagione dovuta ad una disgraziata caduta.
