A 59 year old carpenter recovering from a heart attack befriends a single mother and her two kids as they navigate their way through the impersonal benefits system. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair, the journey is heartfelt and emotional until the end.
This is a gritty and realistic drama portraying the processes and outcomes of claimants caught up in today's benefit system. Not easy watching but compelling.
