A soap opera spanning 8 episodes and conceived by a citizens’ collective, dramatizes the life and problems of the residents of Hull. The central story describes the difficulties one family faces: chronic unemployment, weak parental authority, the breakup of the couple, and the children’s wish to break with their parent’s misery. Each episode starts and finishes with a parody of an ad by a finance company, and deals with a particular problem. The series is shot using rudimentary decor. The result is a soap opera in the "popular realism" style, in which the description of the social situation is more important than the plot.
