In a future, where most of mankind and technology is wiped out, 6 people travel from place to place playing a brutal form of football with a dog skull. They hope one day to play in the league in a city.
A group of Germans adapted Jugger as a sports game in 1993. Ever since Jugger is getting more popular and is played on a regular basis in over 20 countries.
In the opening credits, the last name of actor Hugh Keays-Byrne, who plays the part of Lord Vile, is misspelled as 'Bryne.'
Pre-title card: "People no longer remembered the Golden Age of the 20th Century. They didn't remember the miraculous technology or the cruel wars that followed. They didn't remember when juggers first played The Game or how it came to be played with a dog skull..."
The US version stops a little short and omits the "real" not quite so positive ending found in the European/Asian/Australian version.
