Summary
"In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted to a walled prison where brutal prisoners roam. But when the US president ... crash lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw and form Special Forces war hero Snake Plissken ... But time is short. In 24 hours, an explosive device implanted in his neck will end Snake's mission-- and his life-- unless he succeeds!"--Container
