After a global cataclysm has caused an extinction event, an ailing father defends his son as they wander through the post-apocalyptic world, trying to keep the dream of civilization alive and avoid roving gangs of savage humans who will turn them into slaves, or worse.
Hillcoat certainly provides the requisite seriousness, but what the movie lacks is an underlying sense of innocence, a sense that, however far humanity has sunk, there is at least some chance of rising again.
