Caught out by the benefit system, Catrina and her family of 5 are currently living on just £18 a week - a sum which is supposed to buy food for her 3 children, books for school and nappies for her youngest child, Jamie.

She is currently supported by Leicester Charity Link, who bought her children's school uniform and consequently produced this film to help raise further funds to support both her family and others in her position.

This film was debuted on 05/10/12 at The Phoenix Partners fundraising event, which raised over £1,800 for the cause.

Shot on a Sony EX1 + Shoot 35 Lens adaptor with a selection of Nikkor primes. Due to the severity of the Catrina's situation it would have been unfair to use her house to power my lighting setup, so the whole thing was shot with natural light.
