  • Ten years after a global economic collapse, a cold-blooded drifter traverses the scorched Australian outback on a mission to track down the men who stole his last remaining possession - his car. When he crosses paths with a badly wounded member of the gang, he takes the vulnerable, naïve young man along as his unwitting accomplice.

  • Guy Pierce character, without any remorse, stalks the three men who stole his car and left him abandoned. He acquired another car. Why find these men and retrieve his car? There are clues during the film for the end of the film where the answer to this question lays. During the film the main character sees dogs mistreated and shoots the man who mistreated them. This act was cleverly attached to a theft of a gun but once the end of the film comes, the watcher will understand. Also during the film the main character sits in an area where dogs are kept and shows a fondness for them. Now the ending. He opens the trunk of the car and retrieves a shovel and his (I suppose) dead dog. All along his pursuit was to show an act of kindness to his friend, his dog. "Man's best friend", and bury it.

  • 10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves' brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.
