The year is 2031 AD. In the USA and in the UK, discipline in schools has gotten worse, especially in those girls and boys aged between fifteen and nineteen, to the extent that violence against teachers and mature members of the public has risen by eighty percent. It occurs daily, and the governments on both sides of the Atlantic decide on a drastic bid to rid themselves of the worst of these violent, anti-social young adults - the ‘Battle Royale’ initiative. Five hundred from America and five hundred from Britain are sent to a large uninhabited island. Their brief is to spend the next three months trying to kill one another. Orchestrating the bloodshed behind the scenes is Max Gregory, the man who created the pharmaceutical substance which actually created the increase in violent intent in teenagers in the first place. Yet, amidst the chaos of young men and women assassinating each other, a breakaway group led by John Cooper, a troubled 17 year-old from Oldham, eventually realise what is really going on - Mr Gregory is getting rid of the evidence of his dangerous drug's hazardous side-effects, and they decide to fight against the corporation that wants them all dead!
