Loach's latest hard-hitting socio-political drama tells the story of 'Maggie', a woman with a history of relationships with violent men, who has her four children taken from her when she refuses to co-operate with Social Services. A new liaison with a gentle South American exile only causes new traumas. Loach pushes our sympathies to the side of the underdogs rather than the social workers who are also victims of a heartless system. Extremely harrowing, but a vital catalyst to debate.
