Jack wanted nothing more than to sit on the porch and enjoy the finer things in life. When that all changed, he threw himself into the fight of his life to survive for a chance to return to what he loved.
A large group of teenagers are abducted by aliens and told that if they wish to get home, they have to fight for it. After some minor initial training, they are dropped on a planet where they must fight the hostile local inhabitants. Their initial belief that it is all a bizarre game is wrong and despite everything they had been told to the contrary, it really is a fight for survival.
What they go through over a period of four weeks of fighting turns out to be horrific. The relationships they form amongst themselves to survive and the way they cope with losing each other is in stark contrast to their initial confidence and their naïve belief in what they had been told. Their shock when they realise that they had been betrayed forces them to come to terms with the fact that they can only rely on each other to escape their predicament alive, if not in one piece.
