Two workmates, typical Aussie males, Jaydeep ‘Blogger’ Singh and Michael Stacey, undergo the worst Monday commute in their lives. Not only do they discover an empty tank and no fuel for sale, in the end, they are forced to walk the journey. And for a bloke like Michael, that is beyond unfair punishment.

 

Director Statement 
Asked to think about alternate fuels, sustainable transport, and a lack of oil, we sat down and thought about what we wanted to do. And quickly decided that whatever it was, it was to be fun, irrelevant, and avoid being preachy at all costs.
It would also be dialogue driven.

Alastair Hampton was a valuable resource, being a qualified engineer as well as an accomplished actor, meant that what we wove would actually be based on reality.

So not only did we create a story, its very foundation was both comedy and scientific limitations. As well as irrelevancy.

So a Road Trip when the country is running out of fuel seems perfect.
