THE CONTENDERS, the highest-rated 'reality' program on US television, selects people at random to kill off one another until a sole champion survives. On the show, six contenders are picked by lottery, given a gun, assigned a cameraman and let loose. The Series 7 Marathon has begun in the chosen site of Newbury, Connecticut.
Returning Champion Dawn Lagarto has one last tour before she wins her freedom, and the life of her unborn child whom she is now 8 months pregnant with. Having survived two tours of duty and scored 10 kills she needs five more kills, by any means necessary. Returning to her home town of Newbury, will she make it?
