Once the favourite holiday destination for London’s Eastenders, Jaywick in Essex is now the most deprived place in the UK. Following a handful of the town’s inhabitants over the course of a year, Jaywick Escapes is a touching, empathetic exploration of the causes and effects of lives lived under the circumstances of poverty and social exclusion, and the powerful spell the town casts over its inhabitants.
