In Britain today many working class white men feel demonised, forgotten and angry. Professor Green explores what life is really like for these men, why many of them feel abandoned, and what the consequences are for Britain if we continue to look away. Raised by his nan on a council estate in Hackney, Professor Green is himself from a working class, low-income background. Over a period of six months he follows six working class white men in different parts of the country to understand what life in modern Britain is like for them. He examines the challenges and barriers they face in education, work, family life and in the way the rest of society regards them.

In this episode, Professor Green explores how the identity crisis that he believes white working class men face affects their families. He first meets Gav on the day when he's released from prison, and follows his struggle to rebuild his relationship with his son after his latest spell inside. Will family life be enough to keep Gav on the straight and narrow? Essex boxer Karl is unemployed, and, in the absence of positive role models in his own life, is determined to step up to the responsibility of his new stepfamily. And building site worker Jake has just been given a one-in-a-million opportunity to travel the world as a male model.
