Burt Reynolds plays a prisoner, convicted for drunk driving, who organises an American football match between his fellow prisoners and the prison wardens. For the prisoners, the aim is to get revenge for the harsh treatment they have received; for the wardens, who have been told by the prison chief to play as dirty as possible, the whole point is to inflict a serious quantity of hurt and humiliation on the inmates. Whatever the outcome, this is going to be one of the dirtiest, meanest football games ever played.
