Ray, an old man confined to his bedroom, reminisces about episodes of his life with Liz and their two sons Richard and Jason, back in the 1980s. These flashbacks form a portrait of the family’s dysfunction and fragmentation, pervasively associated with the grinding poverty they live in. The first sees Ray’s brother being manipulated into drinking while he is supposed to be looking after two year-old Jason, and the second is set years later after the family has moved into a small council tower-block flat as they struggle with money and fail to notice their children’s mischiefs. The different periods and places highlight the loneliness of each member of the family, commenting on complex family dynamics in poor working-class homes as well as on the political situation in the UK during the Thatcher years, treated alternately with bleak humour and cruelty in this visually detailed autobiographical film.
