It's the year 2013, and an earthquake has seperated Los Angeles from the U.S. Mainland. A Moral majority has taken over the land and anyone who breaks the “Law” is sent to the prison island of L.A. The President of the U.S has a dilemma. His daughter Utopia has stolen a top-secret “black box” from a space research lab and has taken it to the leader of L.A. Curevo Jones, a violent, ruthless gang member.
With the black box Jones will be able to selectively wipe out all eletrical systems in the world via electromagentic pulse and that doesn't suit well with the president. So he enlists the aid of Snake Plissken, a former war hero turned convict, to retreave the black box.
Plissken's incentive is that they've infected him with a quick acting virus that will kill him in ten hours unless he can get the antidote which will only happen if he sucessfully returns the box.
