Synopsis: The Prix-Historic Games


In the near future, an eccentric billionaire genius and Extreme Sports Enthusiast called Elain, discovers how to create portals to prehistoric times at various points around the world. There she plans to stage a series of life and death challenges whereupon the winner will receive One Billion dollars.

One woman, Hannah, a former famous Extreme Sports Athlete, promises her nephew who’s been diagnosed with a rare disease she’ll find a way to pay for his treatment, treatment neither she or her sister can afford. Hannah enters the illegal tournament with the intention of winning the prize money, little does she know, her sister Dawn, a Law Enforcement officer, has been tasked with the duty of going undercover and exposing and bringing down the illicit tournament. Adamant to raise the money for her son by legal means only, Dawn discovers Hannah is a competitor at the tournament, and is torn between her loyalty to her family, and her responsibility to her duties of bringing down the elusive Elain, and the criminals taking part in the competition.

During the series of life threatening tournaments, the two sisters learn they're only way of surviving is to ultimately put aside their differences and work together. Saboteurs, mercenaries, former legendary athletes and disgraced athletes compete against one another for the grand prize, even if it costs them their lives.
