Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country's 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Director: Gerard McMurray
Writer: James DeMonaco
Cast: Luna Lauren Velez, Aaron V. Williamson, Melonie Diaz, Chyna Layne, Lex Scott Davis, Mo McRae, Y'lan Noel, Patch Darragh, Joivan Wade and Qurrat Ann Kadwani
