The Contest

Four teenagers in need of money and a second chance are offered the chance to enter a mysterious high-stakes “contest” with a $10 million prize. To compete, they each must do a series of strange tasks—and they gradually realize that they’re caught in an elaborate plot that’s putting them in serious danger.

But who’s behind the plot? What’s the endgame? It’s up to the four “contestants” to get to the bottom of everything . . . before time runs out.
