When a competition among neighbours gets out of control, a silly game becomes one last battle for supremacy. What everyone thought was just a normal good citizen’s duty to keep the environment clean, it turned out to be a mercilessly recycling war that sees Arlo, a submissive husband bullied by his despotic wife, stuck in a unreal situation with him and his wife competing against ruthless next door neighbours until only one will survive. ‘Wager Danger’, betrays and back stabs in a refined comedy that better shows the true colours of what it seemed to be a well respected residential community neighbourhood.
