Sometimes, what is broken becomes better than it was before…
Financial hardship, loss, guilt and a dysfunctional family are stuck in a council flat. Is trying really enough? Lou, Tommy and Jay are living on the breadline just trying to get by, but then they face their worst nightmare. Is Trying Enough? explores a reality where there is no other option but for three siblings to live in poverty.
