The theme park was overrun by masked attackers seeking to ‘purge’ their grievances on unsuspecting visitors. 

“Now with the New Founding Fathers of America in charge of America’s political landscape, change is inevitably coming. When Dr. Updale (Marisa Tomei) presents the chance for a risky, theoretical social experiment to become a live phenomenon, The Purge is born. Once Dmitri (Y’Lan Noel) is aware that his hometown of Staten Island has been selected to partake in the monumental social study that will forever change the way citizens interact with their government and neighbors alike, he naturally becomes suspicious of its purpose. Alongside community activist Nya (Lex Scott Davis) and her younger brother Isaiah (Joivan Wade), the three take to the streets of the first ever purge to protect their city and seek to survive at the risk of their own lives.”
Directed by Gerard McMurray and written by James DeMonaco, The First Purge was produced by Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Sébastien K. Lemercier p.g.a. and executive produced by James DeMonaco, Steven R. Molen, Jeanette Volturno, and Couper Samuelson.
The New Founding Fathers of America start the tradition that changes the face of America forever in The First Purge on Digital Tuesday, September 18, followed by its Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra release on October 2nd.
