Revenge, murder, automobiles. The post-apocalyptic future depicted in Mad Max hearkens back to a more medieval, violent existence. Set in a dystopic Australia, a policeman (Max played by a young Mel Gibson) sets out to avenge the deaths of his partner, wife, and child who were murdered by a motorcycle gang in retaliation for the death of their leader. Following our anti-hero through his undoing into madness, Mad Max takes audiences on a wild ride through this strange, yet recognizable, future.

Morricone Youth is a New York City band formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music.
