The planet is dead. After using up Earth's resources, humanity largely killed itself off in a series of massive worldwide conflicts. All that is left of the human race scrabbles like cockroaches through the wreckage, using what they can scavenge of 1970s technology to live one day longer. With law and order mostly collapsed, people are left with nothing but anarchy. Well, anarchy... and one man. Welcome, mate, to the world of Mad Max!
