The Road to Middle England

The Road to Middle England is a parody of the English preoccupation with social mobility. 


The film explores the ideology of social progression from the perspective of someone that is financially insecure and unemployed. The story follows an unnamed jobseeker, faced with a mandatory work trial at his local Burger Island fast food outlet in order to continue his entitlement to social welfare.

A dystopian nightmare unfolds as humiliation becomes a necessary experience of class progression.
