“There’s always someone on your back, isn’t there?”

From legendary director Ken Loach (Palme d’Or winners I, Daniel Blake and The Wind That Shakes the Barley) comes an impassioned and empathetic portrait of family life in modern-day Britain. Delivery driver Ricky Turner (Kris Hitchen) and his loved ones have been fighting an uphill battle against debt. Hoping that freelance self-employment through the gig economy can solve their financial woes, he and his wife Abbie (Debbie Honeywood) struggle to raise their teenage children while caught in the vicious circle of labour exploitation. Returning to the vital themes of Loach’s best work – with a dash of Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves – it’s a powerful political statement and a fine-tuned work of cinematic art.
