This movie depicts America in the year 2022. There are no more bickering political parties, as they have been replaced by the “New Founding Fathers of America”. Crime has dropped to the lowest records ever. This is all because one night a year americans are allowed to “purge”, meaning that any crime is legal for one night. This is seen as a means of releasing pent up aggressions and relieving the country from experiencing violent crime all throughout the year. This controversial film is meant to push some buttons, with a plot that is hard to predict.
