Still wandering the scorched earth, Max (now played by Hardy) finds himself captured and turned into a slave to patriarchal post-apocalyptic warlord Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Max’s opportunity to escape comes in the form of one-armed truck driver Imperator Furiosa (Theron), who leads a small platoon of Joe’s former concubines across the desert in search of a new home.
