Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle and have been fighting an uphill struggle since the 2008 financial crash. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another while Abby, who loves her work, cares for old people. Despite working longer and harder they realise they will never have independence or their own home.

An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver, with his own business at last. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when the family are pulled in different directions, everything comes to breaking point.

★★★★★ - Guardian
“Fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned… This brilliant film will focus minds.” 

★★★★ - Time Out
"Ken Loach is in blistering form with this gripping indictment of the modern gig economy" 

“Intimate and powerful drama” - Variety

“Radiates a timeliness…” – IndieWire

“Hard-hitting, powerful film, spiked with humour” – Cinevue

★★★★★ - Independent
★★★★ - HeyuGuys
