Phil, an unemployed bong connoisseur, wakes up to find his laid-back life thrown into chaos and confusion by the actions of his mate Nick, a small time hustler. Despite being sucked into a vortex of mayhem, betrayal, destructive antics and drug-consuming oblivion, Phil becomes side tracked trying to
pick up the girl of his dreams. What ensues is a darkly comedic twenty-four hour marathon of drugs, violence and sexual frustration.
Created by Michael Mackenzie and Tony Dupcinov, Wasteland is a black comedy about what happens to unemployed, under-achieving, lazy, drug-taking, time-wasting, irresponsible, Centrelink-sponsored slackers as they contend with a lack of sex and money and an overabundance of drugs.
