A postapocalyptic western taking place in an abandoned landscape, in which a girl is wandering with her dog. The dog symbolizes the devil, who is guiding her through hell. In the second part the „ devil-dog“ dies and the girl finds herself in barren lands, which symbolizes „ post-hell“. The film, in a narrative form, portrayes the emptiness of the postapocalypse, in which much symbolism and meaning is hidden.
Wasteland is a narrative story, which is dominated by the repeating motive of death (Henry, black dog, bull). The first half literally illustrates accompanying text, the second is more authentic, naturalistic, and less distinct shots, and reaches a stronger effect of the main „heroine’s“ hopelessness.
