It is 2013. The entire world has abolished capital punishment. Prisons are overcrowded with ex-condemned men. The international community decides to launch an experiment entitled ‘Terra Nova’. A trial group of convicts is sent away to a deserted island, far away from civilization. There, they are left alone for three months, free from the guards’ control. The convicts must learn how to live and to coexist in a new environment.
