In Japan a class of 42 student is selected to participate in a government project known as Battle Royale. The project forces the students to participate in a "game" , the purpose of the game is unknown to the general public. In the game each student is provided witha a day pack which includes a map, a compass, a list of the students, and a randomized weapon, They are also provided with a collar that is impossible to remove without triggering the device which causes it to explode. The collar prevents students from trying to escape and from returning to the school or other forbidden zones which are announced frequently . The only way to win or end the game is to kill of the rest of the classmates and be the last one standing. However the game becomes more intense as paranoia and fear kick in, combined with the fact that as time passes the area of play becomes drastically smaller.
