A terrible catastrophe almost destroyed the civilization of the Earth. The remains of the survivors were divided into separate groups. Some of them are trying to build a former life or at least establish a peaceful existence. Others, taking advantage of the reigning anarchy, have lost their gangs and are engaged in robbery and violence.
Among the gangs, the group led by Skurzh is especially notable for its brutality. Well, by the standards of this world, armed bandits on motorcycles and jeeps rob, kill, steal people in order to turn them into slaves or sell them to brothels.
During one of the attacks, the bandits kidnap a young woman who turns out to be the sister of the protagonist named Trace. Trace travels through the desert in a powerful car equipped with various deadly devices. Naturally, Trace is trying to save his sister. True, for this he will have to go through many trials - a terrible battle in the dungeon, fall in love with himself and spend the night with a mercenary named Stinger, work in the Brotherhood of Owners convoy, meet with scientists at the spaceport planning to build a spaceship, and fly away with unfriendly planet. However, after going through these adventures, Trace snatches his sister out of the hands of Skurge's bandits.
“Fire Wheels” was shot under the clear influence of the movie “ Mad Max ”, which became very popular and gathered a good box office, like many other films in the genre of dystopia and post-apocalyptic . The plot, the characters of the heroes, the image of the earth and various signs of human civilization after the disaster are similar - gangs of bikers , lack of fuel, vehicles (motorcycles, cars). Even externally, Trace resembles Max Rokatansky.
