The most popular television game show in the near future is one where everyday men or women volunteer to be hunted. They are hunted down and killed by a team of five pursuers, also volunteers from different walks of life. If they survive they will get an enormous cash prize. But no one has managed to survive... so far.

Our hero, a family man, needs the money, so he takes part in the game. He proves out to be very good, but things are not what they seem.
