Alex’s twin brother, Aaron, is one of the “Wanteds.” Bright and strong, he’ll go straight to university the day after the Purge. Alex, on the other hand, is “Unwanted.” As soon as the announcements are made, Alex and the other Unwanteds will board a waiting bus that will take them to their deaths.
But Elimination is not at all what Alex had supposed and he and the other Unwanteds find themselves on a journey that pits Wanteds against Unwanteds and brother against brother.
