The eve of the annual Scarecrow Festival, two St. Charles police officers search for a return killer the same night four teenagers go missing on Munger Road. The Road shares the premise of the novel on which it is based: a father (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) struggle to survive after an unspecified cataclysm has destroyed civilization, killed almost all plant and animal life, and obscured the sun; only remnants of mankind remain alive, reduced to scavenging or cannibalism. The man and boy travel southward, in the hope that it will be warmer. Along the way, they search for shelter, food, and fuel, and avoid bands of cannibals while trying to maintain their own sense of humanity.
The man carries a revolver, but has only two bullets, which he wants to keep in case they need to commit suicide. Flashback and dream sequences spaced throughout the narrative show how the man’s wife, who has a much larger role in the film than in the book, committed suicide after delivering the child and losing the will to go on.
After shooting a member of a cannibal gang, the man is left with only one round in his gun. Later, the pair enter a large house, and discover it to be inhabited by cannibals who are keeping live victims in the basement and are harvesting their limbs; believing they will be caught, the man prepares to shoot his son, to spare him the horror and pain of this fate, but the cannibals are distracted and they escape.
Further down the road they find a house with an underground shelter full of canned food, which they feast on, but the man is too nervous to stay in one spot for long. They later encounter an old, dying man (Duvall). The son encourages his initially reluctant father to converse with him and feed him. Arriving at the coast, they are robbed; they catch the thief and the father forces him to strip, leaving the thief naked by the road. As they pass through a ruined town, the man is shot with an arrow but he kills his attacker. Watch Munger Road Movie Online
The man begins to cough up blood. After they reach the coast, his condition deteriorates and he realizes he is likely to die soon. Near death, he again emphasizes to his son the values of self-preservation and humanity. After the father dies, the son is approached by a father (Pearce), mother (Parker), two children, and a dog who have been following the man and son for some time out of concern for the boy. The boy agrees to join them.

The Road was originally scheduled to be released in November 2008. It was pushed back to be released in December, and then pushed back a second time to sometime in 2009. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio decided that the film would benefit from a longer post-production process and a less crowded release calendar.
