In "Megacity 1", the former New York, there was a judge named Joseph Dredd, who was the strictest and most decisive judge in history. One day, one of the local gangsters named Rico (Armand Asante), who previously imprisoned Dared, now escapes and murders two people with an awe similar to that of Judge Dared.
