Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis for the upcoming thriller The Purge, from producer Jason Blum of Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Bradley Fuller, and Andrew Form.
Here is the official synopsis.
"If on one night every year, you could commit any crime without facing consequences, what would you do? In The Purge, a speculative thriller that follows one family over the course of a single night, four people will be tested to see how far they will go to protect themselves when the vicious outside world breaks into their home. In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. »
