IT IS the near future, a time when mind-control technology has taken society by storm.

Humans control other humans in a mass-scale, multiplayer online game.

Reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall, of TV's Dexter) has created the controversial form of entertainment, Slayers, a hugely popular game that allows millions to act out their innermost desires and fantasies online, in front of a global audience.

Gaming has evolved into a terrifying new dimension - mind control and manipulation.

Instead of gamers controlling an animated character, they can now control real people - Death Row prisoners - in death matches.

Any inmate who lives through 30 matches wins his freedom.
