A group of unemployed white males make a video to help explain to the council that they are being productive. Individuals explain how long they have been unemployed, with periods ranging from a few weeks to a couple of months and what their hopes and dreams are for the future. One individual explains that he would like to learn a trade to become self-employed. Another would like to drive for a living, but cannot currently afford lessons. All agree that the boredom involved being without a job is the hardest aspect about being unemployed.
