Zero hours con­tracts and neo-libe­ral serf­dom: Ken Loach’s new film tells of the social abyss crea­ted by a digi­tal ser­vice eco­no­my. Ricky, Abby and their two kids live in New­cast­le. They’re a strong, loving fami­ly in which ever­yo­ne sticks up for ever­yo­ne else. While Ricky gets by with odd jobs, Abby is a care worker for the elder­ly. No mat­ter how hard they try, they know that they will never real­ly be inde­pen­dent or own their own home. But then it’s sud­den­ly now or never! Thanks to the digi­tal revo­lu­ti­on, a temp­t­ing oppor­tu­ni­ty comes Ricky’s way and he and Abby go all in: she sells her car so that Ricky can buy a deli­very truck and start afresh as a self-employ­ed cou­rier. The future seems rosy. But the pri­ce for Ricky’s inde­pen­dence pro­ves far hig­her than they ima­gi­ned. The fami­ly has to pull tog­e­ther and fight for sur­vi­val.
