Together, they witness the harsh realities of environmental damage caused by his company.

In this Japanese cult classic, 42 high schoolers are transported to a deserted island, each given a map, provisions, and a random weapon. They're each fitted with an explosive collar, ensuring obedience to a gruesome rule: kill or be killed. Their objective? Emerge as the sole survivor as their opponents are killed off one by one while trying to escape the island. However, this brutal game has a fatal catch.
