Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash.
An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with the chance to work as a self employed delivery driver, but it turns out the zero-hours job offers no support, no benefits and workers must meet unreasonable targets.
The family unit is strong but when Ricky and his wife are pulled in different directions, everything comes to a breaking point.
Director Ken Loach, writer Paul Laverty and the award-winning team behind I, Daniel Blake, return with another vital story for our times - a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.
