Plot summary

Wasteland tells the story of six friends after college. Dawnie is a graduate student writing a thesis on the "Lost Generation", and at 27, she is standing strong as a virgin. Alongside are her two best female friends: Sam, a sassy social worker, and Jesse, a publicist obsessed with the downtown dating scene. Other characters include Vandy, a musician by day, bartender by night who still carries a torch for Sam, Ty, who reappears after dumping Dawnie for not "putting out", and Russell, a gay soap opera star terrified of being out and Ty's college roommate.
