The plot of this picture unfolds in the United States of the future. Every year a large-scale television show called “Death Race” is held in the country, which is sponsored by the government and actively advertised by the top officials of the state. According to the competition regulations, several crews take part in the race, each of which consists of a navigator and a driver. Each participant tries to travel as quickly as possible from the east coast of the United States to the west. The winner is determined not only by time, but also by the number of points scored. The government allows race participants to kill pedestrians with impunity. And the more people die under the wheels of the car, the more points the crew will earn.
