Plot and Summary

In the 2010s following an economic collapse, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) have taken over, instituted anarchy, and reinstated themselves as the new totalitarian government. Using the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution, they established one night a year—сalled "the Purge"—in which all crime is legal and all police, fire, and medical emergency services are shut down for 12 hours, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m.

The purge has resulted in crime rates plummeting, unemployment rates at 1% and a strong economy. Although the population believes it is simply an act of catharsis, in reality, it is used as a method of artificial population control, as the people living in poverty and poor neighborhoods are usually the main targets.
