Imagine for a moment that the world you live in is just one of thousands upon thousands of others, each with it's own set of creatures living their own lives unaware of a growing malice.
One man here in our world has discovered these alternate planes of existence and has been exploiting the creatures living there as entertainment for the general population.
He began by filming the activities of these otherworldly beings and then claiming the films as his own work, but now he has gotten greedy and has taken some beings directly out of their own worlds to do combat for his -- and our -- viewing pleasure.
Now these innocent beings must race against each other for their very lives in a winner-take-all SCI-FI-SHOWDOWN!
