Based on Cormac McCarthy’s 2005 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, the film tells a story about a drug deal that goes horribly wrong. In a small Texas border town in 1980, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), an innocent townsman, stumbles across a dying drug dealer, numerous bloody bodies, a truck full of heroin and $2.4 million. He is determined to keep the money for himself, but he has no idea at what cost. After Moss takes the money, he is pursued by an amoral psychopath, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem).
