The film begins with a public trap, in which two men and a woman are chained to a platform above a buzzsaw. The woman, Dina, has been cheating on both men, and they must choose whether to save her or let her die. The crowd watches in horror as the men decide to let Dina fall into the saw, killing her.
Meanwhile, Jill Tuck, Jigsaw's ex-wife, goes to the police station and reveals that Detective Mark Hoffman is Jigsaw's successor. She gives them an envelope containing evidence and requests immunity and protection in exchange. She is placed in protective custody under the supervision of Internal Affairs agent Matt Gibson, who has a history with Hoffman.
Hoffman escapes from the police and sends a video message to Gibson, promising to end the games if Jill is given to him. He also sets up a new game involving Bobby Dagen, a self-help guru who has written a book about surviving a Jigsaw trap, which he never experienced. Bobby is abducted and wakes up in an abandoned asylum, where he must go through a series of traps to save his wife and his crew, who know his secret.
Bobby fails to save his friends and reaches the final room, where his wife Joyce is strapped to an electric chair. He has to insert two hooks into his chest muscles and lift himself up to deactivate Joyce's trap. However, he falls before he can reach the switch and Joyce is electrocuted. Hoffman monitors the game and is satisfied with the outcome. ec8f644aee
