A Newcastle couple struggles to cope with precarious employment in Ken Loach’s unapologetic assault on zero-hours Britain.


Three years after their critically-acclaimed and award-winning I, Daniel Blake, Loach and writer Paul Laverty have produced a similarly sombre view of people working in the gig economy. Before it was the state, now a corporate business model getting away with murder.


Ricky Turner, an energetic family man, believes he’s just got the big break of his life. Convinced by his employer into selling wife Abby’s car to fund his own van, he becomes his ‘own boss’ as a driver for a large delivery company. It doesn’t take long for him to understand the brutal nature of the work as 12-hour shifts, docked wages and penalty fines begin to stack up. Meanwhile, carer Abby is left taking bus after bus to the elderly she looks after. Powerless to contest and working themselves to the bone, trouble arises on all sides and their humble family life starts to unravel dangerously fast.


Moving, unflinching and spiked with moments of rare but profound humanity, Loach’s latest once more fights for a class demographic so frequently blighted by a system designed to devalue them. (Research Chris Coetsee)
