Another in a series of award-winning Loach's social dramas, Sorry We Missed You, through the prism of a delivery man who wants business independence and a more secure future for his family, functions as a pointy and harsh critique of the modern working-class capitalist society. Ricky and his family are having a hard time living up to the debt created after the 2008 financial crisis. The chance to pull out of a difficult life comes with a new van and the opportunity to become a delivery man. Ricky and his wife work hard, family ties are strong but they are coming to the brink soon. In the daily struggle to survive in the increasingly ruthless British labor market, a family of four ends up in a mental and financial abyss.
