Synopsis

What if death live on TV became entertainment? Back in the 60s, a scientific experiment demonstrated that a large majority of people were ready to administer unbearable electric shocks to another man, when encouraged to do so by an authority. this experiment is re-enacted in the form of a tv game show, where 80 participants are asked to follow its despicable rules: despite the candidate's strong yelling complaints, will they obey the TV host's orders and inflict him massive electric shocks? Or will they stop before it's too late?
