Synopsis[]

In the year 2099 mutants break into the city, looting and spreading terror. Pushed back by Dredd, they leave with trucks full of slaves. The gang have kidnapped the mayor's son, so Dredd, disguised in Brotherhood robes, joins them, bringing his Lawmaster as a captured trophy. While the rest of the Brotherhood are eating, he liberates all the slaves including the son of the mayor. When the Brotherhood discovers him, he blinds them with his lawmaster's lights and flares and returns the freed slaves to the city.
