In the near future, there will only be corporations, comfort, conformity and Rollerball. In the very near future, they will produce a war every week during prime time and televise it to the rest of the world. They will call it Rollerball. Within the eye of Jonathan E., the world's most gifted athlete performer, you can see the murderous game which has replaced war. Eighty thousand people are watching from the stands, two billion more are following the game on multivision. It's violence for all, by proxy. The winners survive and receive all the best that the world can offer. Lucky losers are only maimed. Unlucky losers die!
