Sometime in the future America has become puritanical, oppressive. Toe the line and obey and you’ll be fine if you’re a misfit then forget it, you’re screwed. Non-conformity and aberrant behaviour are rewarded with a tattoo and expulsion to the desert wasteland fenced off and abandoned by polite society. Suki Waterhouse plays social misfit Arlene a young woman literally branded undesirable and dumped into this open air prison to fend for herself. She’s barely arrived when she is captured by cannibals bodybuilders living in the hollowed out carcasses of fallen air planes.
