The First Purge is the fourth film in The Purge franchise and will serve as a prequel to the trilogy. It will look back at the first year of the purge when the government sanctioned all crime to be legal for a 12-hour period.

The New Founding Fathers of America were determined to reduce the crime rate below one percent every year. They then tested a sociological theory with an isolated community, allowing the citizens to vent their aggression for one night. However, they weren't able to control the rage in the community and it spread across the country.
