Many white working-class men are struggling in today's society - low education, poor jobs, high crime.
Filmmaker Dan Murdoch spends a year on the fringes of Manchester in some of Britain's most deprived estates. He finds anger, resentment and frustration. But he also finds a spirit of camaraderie among the estates that are fighting to stay above water - fighting not to be forgotten.

Britain's Forgotten Men - Not Forgotten Association - Netflix
The Not Forgotten Association is a British Armed Forces registered charity for serving and ex-service men and women that operates throughout the United Kingdom. Whilst major care is provided by state, Ministry of Defence or other charity sources, the NFA provides extras that able-bodied people take for granted.
Britain's Forgotten Men - Purpose - Netflix
In 1926 the Association officially defined its task as being ‘to provide comfort, cheer and entertainment for the wounded ex-servicemen still in hospital as a result of the Great War'. While the essential needs of the many thousands of ex-servicemen are taken care of by state and the military administration, the NFA provides them extras that able-bodied people take for granted. This ranges from televisions and TV licences for those whose mobility is restricted or are largely housebound, to excursions, concerts and holidays.
