Sorry We Missed You depicts the moving story of a family in contemporary England.
It is a raw and honest story about a family trying to survive in modern England. Ricky (Kris Hitchen) and Abby (Debbie Honeywood) live in Newcastle with their two children, 15-year-old Seb and 11-year-old Liza Jane. Since the economic crisis, the family has been struggling to make ends meet. Abby works long hours as a home-care nurse, while Ricky, who has lost his job in construction, tries to pick up whatever gigs he can find.
In an effort to improve their financial situation and create some stability, Ricky decides to try his luck as a franchiser with a large delivery company. He starts off delivering orders as an owner-driver. But the workload soon becomes untenable as Ricky struggles with the company's many rules and protocols. What should have been Ricky's chance at a better future, is now threatening to destroy his family.
Sorry We Missed You premieres on Thursday 14 November.
