Narrow escapes take on literal meaning as a disastrous series of events at the third challenge puts all the players' lives in danger. Luckily, the players get a short break at the annual Player's Ball, where sparks fly unexpectedly between competitors, and old trouble returns to cause new problems.
In a forgotten rural town, every year the graduating seniors risk their lives in an illegal, high-stakes game to win life-changing money - and a chance to escape. Anonymous judges force the players through a series of challenges that will compel them to confront their deepest fears - and upend their ideas of who they are, who to trust, and who they might become. This year, 47 players will compete for the biggest pot ever. All of them will be changed. Only one will win.
