GUNS AKIMBO

by Jason Lei Howden

synopsis

Guns Akimbo follows a man whose mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death, so that their gladiatorial battles can be live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience.
