About the Film

In the wake of the 2008 financial crash, Ricky and his family continue to power through an uphill struggle against crushing debt. When an opportunity to wrestle back arises—in the form of a new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver— Ricky decides to give it a shot. It is hard work, and his wife’s job as a care worker is no easier. The two cornerstones of a strong family unit are now being pulled in different directions, and something has got to give.
