Report
A working-class family in London's East End is struggling to stay afloat during the recession under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's premiership. Only the mother Mavis is working; father Frank and the couple's two sons Colin, a timid, chronically shy individual and Mark, an outspoken, headstrong young man, are on the dole. This situation is contrasted by the presence of Mavis's sister Barbara, and her husband John, whose financial and social loftiness appears to be a comfortable facade over the unspoken soreness of a lackluster marriage.

It is implied that an aunt and nephew have romantic feelings towards each other but they do not act on them. Both characters are over 18.

I find it a little difficult to make a precise judgement on this, but I'll say that the two parents and their two (grown) children have very hostile relationships with each other, mostly verbal remarks or arguments (including a somewhat intense scene toward the end where the parents yell at their kids and each other and one of the young men eventually yells back), but some light physical escalation as well. Can be hard to watch at times.
