Leave the World Behind- There is no Going Back to Normal


Sometimes, names contain the whole movie story, just like this one. 'Leave the World Behind' is a movie about issues of race and other commotions happening in the world, but issues of race distract the characters from real problems. 

Amanda and Clay went on the most aspirational vacation with their teenage children. Suddenly, their house owner and her daughter come to the place as they escape the blackout in the city. Amanda and Clay's vacation was interrupted by them. Both families have no idea about the outside world as the internet, television, and radio stop working, as does the landline; they cannot find out what is happening. 

And then another strange scenario happened when sonic booms shattered the peace of the countryside. Animals started migrating strangely, and this led to the disintegration of both the families' mental and physical health. They indulge themselves in issues of race clash. On the other side, more alarming things are happening, and they have no idea about them.
