Synopsis : A local man named Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) is out hunting when he stumbles upon a drug deal gone bad. Amidst the bodies of dead men and attack dogs he finds $2 million. And though he's usually a levelheaded guy, he can't help but think of the good life that the cash could bring, so he takes it. But what the money brings is a psychopathic killer named Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem), who's sent to retrieve the lost fortune. Llewelyn tries to use his hard-earned skills as a hunter and Vietnam vet to evade the heartless stalker, but Chigurhis relentless, and corpses begin to stack up like cordwood.
Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) wants desperately to help Llewelyn and stop the carnage, but he always seems to be one step behind the quick-moving men. On top of that, the wizened officer realizes that he may be outside his depth on this one. Over the years, things have changed in some very bad and evil ways. And he may now be living in a world where a good man with good intentions can't make a difference anymore.
