Jacky and Tony are two ordinary guys who work for a property maintenance company in Glasgow, clearing out empty or fire-damaged flats and making simple repairs.
Despite being very different, these two have simply "hit it off". For both men, work is an escape. When they are together in an empty flat, they can go into their own little world – a place of wild flights of fancy and comic imaginings sparked by items they find or problems they encounter in each new location.
Both poignant and funny, Empty sees Jacky and Tony explore comic possibilities in the most mundane situations before the real world intrudes with its uncanny knack of bringing them comically back down to Earth. (Source: BBC Press Office)
