The latest film from wirter/director Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake)
Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle, a strong family who care for each other. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another while Abbie works as a contract nurse. Despite working longer and harder they realise they will never have independence or their own home.
Unable to pass up a job driving for a big delivery company it turns out the zero-hours job offers no support and no benefits; he must buy or lease his own van and meet strict and unreasonable targets.
Rigorously researched, Sorry We Missed You depicts the cost of zero-hours contracts with gut-wrenching honesty. Furious and heart-breaking, it offers a damning critique of the gig economy.
