The Nothing Men

Synopsis: Panic and intrigue grip the lives of a group of hardened factory workers with the arrival of a man they fear is a head-office spy sent to rob them of their redundancy payouts. The ruthless baiting between top dog Jack and his men only intensifies when the pacifist of the group, Wesley, befriends the seemingly normal outsider, David. But when Wesley discovers David is hiding a much darker secret, the seeds are planted for an explosive finale that strikes like an emotional sledgehammer and seal the fate of The Nothing Men.

Jack speaking.

Hey, Percy, how are you? Your

redundancy manager has come through.

You got two weeks to go.

You fucking beauty. He's the

flip side.

There's a new bloke being transferred

to your workshop. Who is he?

Management won't tell me. I

know this much.

How many men?

Can't you find out who he is?

It wouldn't want to be.

Yeah right, Percy. Keep in

touch on this one, right.

OK. (Beep)

(Soft music)


You don't drink. You don't


Alright, I want to talk to your

blokes. Vince, unplug the hippy.

What man? Hey shut up!

Quiet! This is important.

That was Percy on the phone.

The good news is they're processed

our paperwork in two weeks

and we get our redundancy money and

we are out of here. (Cheering)

Thank god for that!

This has been the longest

six months of my life.

Feels like I was born here and haven't left.

Alright, I got some bad news.

As you know, the company has six workshops

statewide with workers made redundant.

One hundred and forty people.

Anyway, as of yesterday, twelve men

were fired from King's Grove workshop.

How can they be sacked if they're redundant?

Some were sacked for leaving

the premises during

working hours. Others for

drinking and gambling.

Sounds a bit like us, hey? Seems to

me that the counts are trying to

find legitimate ways to sack

people rather than pay them out.

This is bullshit.

I wanted to keep working but

they wouldn't let me.

We all did, Des, but supposing

there was an accident.

We would not only get our redundancy

payout, but we'd also get a huge

fucking compo payout as well.

That's the last thing those pricks

in the head office want. Hold on.

So, they're paying us our

normal wage every week.

Just for sitting on our ass and

doing nothing.

Yet, they are purposely sacking

Mark Fitzpatrick

Mark Fitzpatrick (born November 13, 1968) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey goaltender. He moved to Kitimat, British Columbia, where he started minor hockey, when he was ten years old. He won the Memorial Cup twice as a member of the Medicine Hat Tigers before going on to a professional career with the Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders, Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League. Fitzpatrick was drafted 27th overall in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings but only spent a season with the Kings organization before he was traded along with Wayne McBean to the New York Islanders on February 22, 1989 for Kelly Hrudey. During his time with the Islanders, he contracted Eosinophilia–myalgia syndrome, a potentially fatal neurological disease, which cost him nearly all of the 1990-91 season. He recovered and returned to the ice in February 1992. His efforts in returning to the league after the illness earned him the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 1992. On June 20, 1993, with the expansion draft for the Florida Panthers and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim approaching, the Islanders traded him to the Quebec Nordiques for Ron Hextall and a swap of first-round picks. Four days later, the Panthers claimed him in the expansion draft. Fitzpatrick spent five seasons with the Panthers serving as backup goaltender to fellow expansion draft pick John Vanbiesbrouck. On January 16, 1998, Fitzpatrick was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning with Jody Hull for Dino Ciccarelli and Jeff Norton where he only managed 7 wins in 34 games for the struggling Lightning who finished the season with the worst record. Fitzpatrick was traded once more months later to the Chicago Blackhawks for Michal Sykora and spent the season in a backup capacity to Jocelyn Thibault. He moved to Carolina Hurricanes for the 1999–2000 NHL season but spent the majority of the year in the International Hockey League for the Cincinnati Cyclones and just played three games for the Hurricanes. Fitzpatrick spent one more season in the IHL for the Detroit Vipers before retiring in 2001. more…
