Summary

The documentary follows 34-year-old Shaun from Stockton-on-Tees who has been on and off benefits - and in and out of trouble with the police - since leaving school, and is finally trying to turn his life around. Leon from Ashton-under-Lyme is fed up of only finding jobs with zero-hours contracts but cannot afford the transport to look further afield, while Knowsley-based cab driver Mark has not worked since having his licence revoked following an angina attack two years ago. Now he struggles to manage the stairs to his flat and needs moving to a new home.
