In the future, a wealthy family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized.
James DeMonaco got the idea for the story after his wife made a remark about an episode he had with road rage.
Our target for this year's purge is hiding in your home. You have one hour to find him and give him to us or we will kill all of you. We will be coming in.
In the game room, a masked purger shoots many times, narrowly missing his target but hitting the floor yet there are no bullet holes shown in the floor.
