The Road

In a moment the world changed forever.
  • Really should have bought more ammo!

This bleak post-apocalyptic film is based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy. In essence a road movie, where a father and son are travelling to the coast, in a world where humanity has reverted to barbarism. Through flashbacks we learn the reason for their trip, and why mom did not come along. In a violent world, with little food around, dad has to teach his son how to survive.
