Six randomly chosen contestants on a weekly, reality-based TV game show called The Contenders are given handguns and followed around by cameras as they try to kill each other. The winner each week must return the following week -- if they survive three episodes, they're released from the game and allowed to live.

The show's 2-time returning champion, Dawn (Smith), is sent to her hometown where she is pitted against new competitors and must fight for both her and her unborn baby's life.
