In The Empty Hands, Tang plays Mari Hirakawa, a Hong Kong woman who has been estranged from her Japanese father (Yasuaki Kurata) since her Chinese mother left the family as a child. A brown belt karate prodigy until she stopped training with her instructor father completely, Mari has wasted her life on dead-end jobs and a misguided case with a married radio DJ (Ryan Lau Chun-kong) ... The Empty Hands is striking in some ways like cinematography, his retreat to the last steps of Mari and Kent. While the role on To's screen reinforces the importance of awareness, the shooting and action scenes are proportional, recurring impressionists who show Tang and Kurata perfecting their fighting moves show the preparation the cast had in acting well, the film's premise suggests that we are all solitary beings in life, without ceasing to fight our own battles.
