Overview
THE YEAR IS 2019.
Television is now ruling people's lives. The most popular "audience participation" game show is "The Running Man" – where convicts can win pardons instead of "parting gifts" by defeating murderous henchmen known as "stalkers." The stalkers haven't had much of a challenge lately...until Ben Richards (Schwarzenegger) comes along.
