The hit TV programme, ‘Colosseum’, promises contestants a once-in-a-lifetime experience of acting in a gruesome action show. With a life changing cash prize at stake, among the vulnerable entrants is Anna, an estranged mother. She signs up with the desire for a better life. However, she is unaware of the games true nature; there are no special effects and no stunts. The bewildered contestants are forced to brutally murder each other to the cheers of the blissfully unaware public. And as our protagonist is maimed, mangled and mutilated, she must choose between her morals and her own survival.
