Summary
Llewelyn Moss is a Vietnam vet who could use a break. One morning while hunting antelope, he spies several trucks surrounded by dead bodies. He decides to examine the site. He finds a case filled with $2 million and a truck loaded with heroin. Moss takes it with him, tells his wife he's going away for awhile, and hits the road until he can determine his next move. On his way from El Paso to the Mexican border, he discovers he's being followed by ex-special ops agent Chigurh. Chigurh's weapon of choice is a cattle gun, and he uses it on everyone who gets in his way. Just as Sheriff Bell, a World War II vet, is on Moss's trail, Chigurh's former colleague, Wells, is on his. Llewelyn Moss stumbles onto a drug deal gone monumentally wrong while hunting in the parched Texas scrubland near the Mexico border. A satchel filled with $2 million seems to be a ship finally arrived, and he dreams of moving his wife Carla Jean out of the trailer park and into the good life. It isn't long before he's being tracked by Anton Chigurh, a psychopathic "debt collector." Sheriff Bell sets out to find Llewelyn, not so much for the propriety of recovering the money but to protect one of his citizens from Chigurh, an evil like nothing Bell has ever seen. The border is a hard land, yet Bell finds that the reflexive murders Chigurh inflicts upon others transforms the lonely vistas, somber deserts, and austere mountains into something horrendous--into no country for old men--or for young ones.
