In order to satisfy the deviant impulses of the general public through impromptu catharsis, the U.S. government initiates "The Purge", an annual 12-hour period in which all illegal activity, including murder is legal. The movie centers around a single family whose home has been fortified to protect them from outsiders during one of these purges. The family, whose two children debate the morality of the purge and the views of their parents, begins the yearly routine of locking down their home for the purge. During this free-for-all, when the son of the family lets a man being hunted into their home, they must protect themselves from a home invasion by psychopathic strangers.

And I'm curious...what area of the world do you come from that implements such activity? Granted this movie is a shot in the dark, but to me it sounds like you have a familiar event.
