Thirty years after an apocalyptic event, Eli (Denzel Washington) is on a journey to the west coast of the United States. On his travels he runs into many enemies, but he ably dispatches them with fluid bladework.
Searching for a source of water he arrives in a ramshackle town which is overseen by Carnegie (Gary Oldman). Carnegie is a literate man and he has gangs looking for a book, though the gangs and his own henchmen do not understand why he wants the book.
After shooing away a cat in Carnegie’s bar, Eli is set upon by a gang of bikers; Eli kills them all. Realizing that Eli is a literate man like himself Carnegie asks Eli to stay, though it is made clear that the offer is not negotiable. After Carnegie’s blind wife Claudia (Jennifer Beals) gives Eli some food Carnegie asks Claudia’s daughter Solara (Mila Kunis) to seduce Eli. Eli turns her down but before they eat he says a prayer.
The following day Solara prays with her mother and Carnegie realizes that Eli has a copy of the Bible, the book he has been looking for, as all copies were destroyed after the apocalypse. Eli sneaks out of his room and goes to the stores across the street where he asked the Engineer (Tom Waits) to recharge his portable battery.
