What’s It All About? Radio and TV personalities hype the propaganda of America — the land of the free, where every year for a 12-hour period all crime is legal during the Purge. Americans are free to choose how they will spend this “evening of infinite possibility.” Based on the popular horror films, the 10-episode eerie social study of a series follows several seemingly unrelated characters — a charismatic cult leader, a U.S. Marine preparing to face the senseless violence alone in order to protect his family, a finance professional who’s convinced she’s hit the glass ceiling at her firm and hires a Purge assassin, an anti-Purger devoted to charitable causes who ventures out for the first time, and a man climbing the social ladder who struggles with what moral price to pay to achieve the American dream. Will they run? Will they hide? Will they seek, hunt, avenge, steal, cheat and/or kill?
