Plot Summary

  • Ever seen the show "Survivor" and wished they would just start killing each other?? Series 7 literally gives its contestants the guns. The film is not merely a satire on reality TV.

What is the prize? How are the contestants picked? These questions are not as important as asking yourself how shameless has our society become?
