In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in search for her homeland with the aid of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshiper, and a drifter named Max.
George Miller described the film as "a very simple allegory, almost a western on wheels".
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.
After the "I'm gonna need you to drive, I'll get him out of our way" scene, there's a crane in shot revealing Max behind the "Doof warrior", you can see clearly the shadow of the crane in the The War Rig (left side of the screen below)
Near the end of the credits there is a memorial dedication that reads "Lance Allen Moore II, May 24, 1987 - March 10, 2015." Apparently Moore was a Mad Max fan killed in a motorcycle accident near Silverton, New South Wales, Australia, where Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) was filmed.
A "PG-13" version was created, but only screened for American test-audiences. Positive feedback towards the "R-rated" version convinced Warner Bros to release it, theatrically.
