ly. ON A HIGHWAY...
JESSIE carrying the child, scrambles from her van and
runs down the road. A GANG OF OUTLAW BIKERS run them
down... the child's ball bounces down the road.
MAX runs towards their bodies...
Iz. SILHOUETTED ON A HILLSIDE GRAVEYARD.
MAX stands looking down at two headstones...
laa. IN FRONT OF A ROARING FIRE.
MAX fuels the blaze with the remnants of his past life:
children's toys; photo albums; his police badge.
lbb. MAX WITH HIS SHOTGUN.
...turns to camera, wild-eyed ...
And became a shell of a man. A
burnt out, desolate man, a dead man,
running from the demons of his past.
A man who wandered far away...
1cc. MAX DRIVING.
The supercharger On the front of the vehicle dominates
And it was out here in this blighted
place, that he learned to live
FADE OF COLOUR:
THE SCREEN WIDENS TO ANAMORPHIC RATIO.
2.HELICOPTER AERIAL TRANSITION. DAWN.
We soar along the empty highway up and down its rises
and around its curves until we are out in the vast
3. WASTELAND. DAY.
The black hole of the supercharger dominates the frame.
Behind the wheel we see MAX looking about 3 years older.
He is gaunt, unkept - his leathers tattered and torn.
The black-on-black pursuit car, bearing the scars of
numerous road duels, cruises down the roller coaster
As MAX crests a hill he hits the brakes. His companion,
a mongrel DOG, sitting in a baby's auto seat, lifts its
head to look.
The black-on-black slides to a stop.
4.RURAL SHACK 0N HIGHWAY. DAY.
On a ridge close to the road, silhouetted in a
dust-blown field, is a strange assortment of WARRIOR
LIKE MEN. They are cannibalizing a farm vehicle:
siphoning its fuel and loading food and other loot into
their bizarre vehicles.
