Synopsis / Plot
In the year 2018, all world problems have been quelled by the establishment of huge corporations that control resources. The masses are pacified and violence diverted by the spectacle of the ultra-violent game of Rollerball, a combination of pro-football, motocross rally and gladiatorial combat, in which players are frequently killed. One of the most successful players, Jonathan E., has become a superstar with the Houston team. The corporations fear this idolatry and ask Jonathan to retire. He refuses and goes on a quest to discover why corporate decisions are made. His defiance provokes the corporation who place him in a game with no rules or time limit to dispose of him.
