Premise

Several years after a series of catastrophic worldwide calamities caused the downfall of civilization in the year 2060 AD, Max, a former highway patrolman, meets Furiosa, a woman attempting to cross an immense desert.[5] With her are former female captives collectively known as the Five Wives. They are on the run from the tyrannical Fascist leader, Immortan Joe and his bloodthirsty military force, the War Boys, who rule over a totalitarian desert kingdom called the Wasteland.

Their only hope of reaching safety is Max and his expansive knowledge of the desert’s many dangers. Max initially refuses, but when he is captured and tortured by Joe, his only chance of escape depends on Furiosa and the Wives. With the War Boys in hot pursuit, this unlikely band must fight to ensure the continued survival of the human race.[6]
