Mad Max chronicles a dystopian society where law and order have broken down. Ruling the landscape are competing motorcycle gangs that maraud across the countryside raping, stealing, and killing. Trying to stop them is the Main Force Patrol's best pursuer, "Mad" Max Rockatansky. Early in the film, he pursues Berserk gang member Crawford "Nightrider" Montizano until he crashes his motorcycle and dies. Nightrider's gang is not pleased that Max caused his death setting off a chain reaction of violence. The gang seeks vengeance by killing Max's best friend, wife, and baby. With nothing left to live for, Max decides to take the law into his own hands. He delivers vigilante justice without need for arrests or trials while sinking into a moral abyss.
