The plot of Mad Max: Fury Road continues the adventures of former cop Max Rockatansky, in a desert wasteland where humanity is broken, and everyone is trying to get the necessary supplies to survive. Max gets captured by an army called the War Boys, who are led by their cult leader, King Immortal Joe. After escaping the War Boys, Max aids Imperator Furiosa, who is trying to get all of Joe’s five wives to safety, from Joe. Furious is also trying to find her homeland. Whilst Max is helping Furiosa, they are chased by Joe and the War Boys, who are trying to get Joe’s wives back and kill Max, because he escaped them, and Furiosa, because she betrayed them, when she is trying to get Joe’s wives away from him.

Max Rockatansky: You know, hope is a mistake. If you can’t fix what’s broken, you’ll, uh… you’ll go insane.
Max Rockatansky: [Narrating] My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy… me… or everyone else.
