Sometime in the near future, near anarchy has broken out in Japan. The government responds by passing the Battle Royale Act, a piece of legislation mandating that a group of young people - and only young people - are forcibly marooned together on an island, and forced to kill each other until one survivor is left. If more than one is still alive after three days, every survivor will be killed. The film follows a class of 14-year-olds who believe they're on a school trip, when they are drugged. They wake up, in a derelict building on a deserted island; they're each given enough provisions for three days, a weapon, and the ultimatum. This version contains eight minutes of additional material not included in the theatrical release

"A brutal tale of two warring underworld factions determined to gain ultimate power over Kurashima City. The year is 1963, and the delicate balance of power in Kurashima City is shakily maintained between two warring factions. The political influence of the Kawade gang helps to legitimize the vicious group's lucrative rackets scheme, and the uneasy alliance shared between their rivals the Ohara gang and the corrupt local police force ensures that neither gang gets too much power. When the lure of some valuable waterfront property becomes too much for the Ohara boss to resist, however, the volatile standoff receives just the catalyst needed to spark a vicious bloodbath between the gangsters, cops, and politicians all looking to come out on top."--Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
