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.

Tonight allows people a release for all the hatred and violence that they keep up inside them.
This won't bring him back.
It won't make you feel any better.
It is a night that is defining our country.
Citizens, this will be a tradition we celebrate every year.
Join the first Purge.
Isaiah, come say bye.
Go do your thing, sis.
I'll see you tonight.
People are now calling this controversial experiment of legalized crime "The Purge."
Do not purge!
Do not purge!
You and Isaiah, just stay with me during The Purge.
Oh, we're gonna be fine on our own.
We are here with Dr. May Updale.
She came up with this experiment.
Is The Purge a political device?
It is a psychological one.
If we want to save our country, we must release all our anger in one night.
Tonight, we'll see the good and evil in everyone.
This is your Emergency Broadcast System announcing the commencement of the first Purge.
Our neighborhood is under siege from a government who doesn't give a shit about any of us.
At the siren, all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 hours.
There's a lot of good people out there who we're gonna have to protect.
All emergency services will be suspended.
We gotta be prepared for anything.
Your government thanks you for your participation.
You predicted a much higher level of participation.
Human nature does not obey the laws of politics.
What the hell is going on?
They all ex-military.
Something funky going down, D.
You're sending soldiers into the island disguised as citizens.
This country needs for this to work.
No one's coming to help us.
After tonight nothing will ever be the same again.
They forgot about one thing.
They forgot about us.
What have I done?
Stay strong, honey.
Just remember all the good the Purge does.
