From the box:

Mel Gibson introduces the character of Max in this full-speed futuristic epic, a bleak, decaying landscape of the post-nuclear future that continues in “The Road Warrior.” MAD MAX is the dark vision of this stark future, a high-speed, high-intensity film that became an instant cult classic.

In this desolate wasteland, all that remains is the highways of the Australian outback, the scene of bizarre death chases between vicious rebel bikers and the police who guard what is left of civilization. Max is a gung-ho young cop, the best of his squad. But when Max’s best friend on the force is killed, Max hangs up his guns, taking his wife and young child across the country on a long-needed vacation. But the renegade gang isn’t through with Max just yet…
