As the economic crisis deepens and schisms emerge, Lucy Ash travels across Europe to meet the continent's next generation, who face an uncertain future. She explores the challenges they face and the ways in which they are meeting them.

In the final programme of the series, Lucy Ash visits Katowice, in south east Poland, where young people are going underground, literally down re-opened coal mines because there are few other jobs available, and legally, as Lucy discovers when she speaks to young entrepreneurs who are resorting to illicit means because they say the country's taxes are crippling them.
