Cyber City Oedo 808
Distributor: Central Park Media
In the year 2808, three criminals are offered a choice: Spend the rest of their lives aboard a maximum-security orbital prison, or return to Earth as agents of the Cyber Police. Each criminal is fitted with a booby-trapped, high explosive collar...if ever a check-in is missed, the consequences would be...gruesome. For every criminal caught, the agents receive a “bounty” that reduces their total sentence, so someday they may walk free again.
