The post-apocalypse as playground for wayward youth. Street gangs ride up and down the highways, and it’s all fun and games until the city gets blown up. Again. The second banana gets big for his boots, and I mean BIG. You know it, you love it. A pounding soundtrack, the best drawn visuals money can buy and an ending for the ages.
