In a post-apocalyptic world a son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and his father (Viggo Mortensen) walk through frozen and desolate lands that were once thriving cities.  The sun is nearly obscured; vegetation is nonexistent.  All they have as a revolver, two bullets, a shopping cart, and what little food they collect along the way.

The father and son are attempting to walk south, where they hope the climate will be warmer.  They are constantly surrounded by cannibals, and remaining in one spot for too long is dangerous.  In their condition, perseverance is everything, and the only person they can trust is each other.

The Road was a minor commercial success, earning $27 million.  Its budget was $25 million.
