The film is set in a house occupied by a collection of social misfits. The main storyline is that of a strange musician's relationship with a girl, their drug use and his band. These events are surrounded by a chaotic myriad of sub-plots. A homicidal chainsaw maniac's lust for his machine and a T.V station's offer of money in return for a piece of the Skylab satellite that has fallen to earth are just two. The film is composed of small fragments in the lives of its inhabitants, each following onto the next, sometimes overlapping and ending in tragedy.

In Luchio's bedroom there is a sticker for the FM radio station Triple M. At time the film was set, MMM did not exist (it began as EON-FM at that time) and there were in fact no commercial FM radio stations broadcasting in Melbourne. The radio station the cast do listen to, 3XY, was an AM station that changed to FM and became Triple M; this may have been a bit of product placement. See more
Better watch out, Sammy. You'll get healthy eating all that crap.
