In the year 2022, crime and unemployment are at an all-time low in the United States. It’s a wonderful time in the history of our great country. However, freedom and prosperity don’t come without a price. To keep order, the government has sanctioned one night a year for citizens to "purge" themselves. During this twelve hour period, all crime is allowed and the emergency services and police are off-duty. This is an opportunity for people to get their aggressions out any way they need to, whether it be looting, murdering, or some other means.
The Sandin family (Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Max Burkholder, and Adelaide Kane) is spending the night of the Purge barricaded inside their high-class mansion. The home’s intricate security system is nearly full proof. When the Sandin’s son (Burkholder) sees a man (Edwin Hodge) begging for his life in front of their house, he opens the door and lets him in. Unfortunately, the group seeking their would-be victim want to "purge" and will stop at nothing to get the man back from the Sandins and punish the rest of the family for helping him.
