Revered British director, Ken Loach, raises his game yet further with this rollercoaster tale of a delivery worker pushed to the edge.

In his follow-up to the Palme d’Or winning  I,Daniel Blake, Ken Loach masterfully depicts, with compassion and anger, a callous economic system designed to ignore the humanity of those on its lowest rung. Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle, England and are a loving family. Ricky has worked job after job, often involving manual labour, while Abby is an overworked but empathetic carer for the aged. Spending a large proportion of their income on rent, the couple realise that though they work longer and harder, they will never get ahead or attain their dream of owning a home. The app revolution offers Ricky a golden opportunity to buy a van, start his own business, and become a freelance deliveryman. But things don’t work out as planned, and Ricky and his family soon find themselves on the brink.
