The Road is a story about self-preservation, but also about humanity. Although Viggo Mortensen's character is willing to do anything to keep himself and his son alive, his son reminds him that even in a dystopic wasteland, there is a difference between survival and immoral self-interest. So before you go robbing your neighbors of the clothes off their back, remember that mercy isn't just the name of Kim Kardashian's deceased kitten, it's also something to cherish.
