Former policeman, Max (Tom Hardy), is captured by the War Boys tribe commanded by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keys Byrne) and assigned to be blood donor for the Nux (Nicholas Hoult) who is sick. Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is ordered by Joe to head on an excursion into the desert to collect gasoline. Furiosa drives a tank truck out from the Citadel and once out from his clutches, she changes the course of her destination and flees with five slave women hidden in the truck to her homeland Green Place. Immortan Joe commands his army of men, headed by Nux, to hunt down Furiosa. Nux chains Max to his car and leads the way. The army manages to catch up with Furiosa in a nail-biting car chase that ends with the army losing out and Max succeeding in getting off the car. But he is chained to Nux and is forced to drag him along. He sees Furiosa and the five women and decides to flee in their truck. But there is a secret to operate the truck which Max does not know. He finally teams up with Furiosa, and after a fist fight with Nux, Max leaves him in the desert. When Joe’s gang arrives, they retrieve Nux and the chase to find Furiosa begins all over again.
Will Max and Furiosa escape from Joe’s gang? Find out in this high octane flick with its deadly action.
