With unemployment at an all-time high and violence amongst school children almost out of control, the Japanese government introduces the "Battle Royale Act."

"With unemployment at an all-time high, teenage delinquency becoming unmanageable and violence amongst the nation's youth spiralling out of control, Japan is in a state of near-collapse. With school children boycotting their lessons and physically abusing their teachers, a beleagured and near-defeated government decides to introduce a radical new measure: the Battle Royale Act. Overseen by a former teacher, (Takeshi Kitano), and requiring that a randomly chosen school class be taken to a deserted island and forced to fight each other to the death, the Act dictates that only one pupil be allowed to survive the punishment. He or she will return, not as the victor, but as the ultimate proof of the lengths to which the government are prepared to go to curb the tide of juvenile disobediance. In controversial comment on the competitive Japanese educational system, a class of high school students are taken to a desert island and forced to kill each other until only one remains. A highly controversial film, Fukasaku's shocking portrayal of a society in ruins was described by the Guardian as 'a cross between "Clockwork Orange" and "Lord Of The Flies", and is Japanese Shock Cinema at its finest."
