Somewhere off the eastern coast of America lies Mega City One, a vast violent metropolis, built on the ruins of the old world, where criminals rule the chaotic streets.
The only force of order lies with the Judges, a futuristic police force who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd is the ultimate Judge, tasked with ridding the city of its latest scourge, a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of 'Slo-Mo' experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.
Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson, a rookie with powerful psychic abilities due to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture, a 200-story vertical slum controlled by prostitute-turned-drug lord, Ma-Ma, and her ruthless clan.
When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a brutal, vicious war against the Judges, stopping at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in a relentless battle for their survival.
