A randomly selected small town plays host to this sinister 'fight to the death' competition every seven years when assassins meet in gory battle for the perverse pleasure of the world's richest citizens in "The Tournament." Winner of the deadly championship fight receives the multi-million dollar prize and the grand title of soul survivor. This particular tournament is set in a rural English town and features a bloody showdown of Joshua Harlow, previous ‘Tournament’ champion with a personal vendetta as he seeks to avenge the sadistic death of his wife and child, Lai Lai Zhen, whose only hope is to outwit death and take top honors so she can disappear from the only world she knows, and Miles Slade, a ruthlessly barbarous killer whose presence in the tournament is one of personal pleasure. This blood-soaked tale of revenge and survival challenges the boundaries of the human spirit, questioning the mind when pushed to its absolute limits. "The Tournament" is as riveting as it is horrifying, a must see for any unconventional cinematic thrill seekers.
