UNDERGROUND is a prison where people of all walks of life, both men and women that have been
kidnapped are forced to fight for survival in death matches in front of private paying spectators.
Anyone refusing to fight is tortured and killed.
Frank is a mobster that keeps his victims locked up in cages of a cellar secretly built amidst union corruption in the construction industry. It’s not even listed as existing on any city records. The victims are kidnapped for revenge or are simply just interesting enough to be kidnapped for entertainment purposes.
In the UNDERGROUND you are forced to fight to survive or die a brutal death If you lose. You are rewarded with food and a chance to live to fight another day.
Everyone else becomes your enemy in the UNDERGROUND.
A bride to be carrying her bridal dress is abducted after meeting her secret lover for coffee where she is reassuring him that she will continue to see him after she gets married.
She wakes to find herself in the UNDERGROUND, forced to wear her wedding dress and enter the fight ring with the ceremonial music of ‘Here Comes The Bride’ playing as she enters the ring sentenced to fight to the death against her husband to be and lover in a three way fight to the death.
The tiring repetitive nature of the matches inspire the mobsters crazed associates to request professional fighters offering good money to have the professional fighters delivered.
Tommy is a retired fighter who is now somewhat of a street hero with money problems. He is approached by the mobster Frank and his thugs wanting to arrange a fight, not informing Tommy that the actual fight is to be a death match between Tommy and the mob’s prize fighter. None the less, Tommy’s fiancé Karen reminds him that he is retired for a good reason and that she does not want him to get hurt whatever the reward may be. Tommy agrees not to fight.
Karen is abducted and tortured. The mob threaten to kill Tommy to prey on her fear. She is asked to perform sexual favours to save Tommy from being killed. Karen does not believe Frank and refuses to submit to his demands.
In his pursuit to find Karen, Tommy is lured to the UNDERGROUND where his fiancé is humiliated in front of him by Frank to prove that he means business. Karen eventually succumbs to Frank’s requests realising that Tommy could be harmed or kiiled.
Already tormented by being forced to watch the abuse of his fiancé, Tommy agrees to fight on the condition that Frank and his goons no longer harm Karen and set her free If he will agree to fight. Frank only agrees to set Karen free on the condition that Tonmy wins the fight.
Tommy agrees to fight and is put in a cage whilst his fiancé continues to be abused. That is when he is first exposed to the thetorturous UNDERGROUND. He learns that he has just been placed in a hell cell and that there will be no freedom or escape.
Tommy’s challenge is now not only to win, but to rescue his fiancé and escape THE UNDERGROUND!
