Synopsis / Plot
Year 2022. In a dystopian future society, a political regime called the New Founding Fathers of America tries to clamp down on rampant violence and crime by imposing strict laws. As an experiment, they try something called The Purge, in which for 12 hours, once a year, all crime, including murder, is completely legal. That is, given the country's overcrowded prisons, the U.S. government begins to allow this 12-hour periods of time in which all illegal activity is legal. During one of these free-for-alls, a family must protect themselves from a home invasion.
