Matthew, Martin and Mandy are childhood friends from Herne Bay who are now sharing a flat in Battersea, London.

After his parents are killed in a road accident, Matthew develops agoraphobia. Fearful of leaving the flat, he is forever finding bizarre ways to pass the time of day.

Martin's life isn't much better: he has a boring job at a bank and can't seem to get a girlfriend. Attracting the opposite sex isn't a problem for Mandy, but holding down a job is as she finds herself going from one temp job to another.
