Alita: Battle Angel is set in the 26th century, 300 years after the Great Wars. This is the story of a young female cyborg discovered and rebuilt by the scientist who will become her father figure.
When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control, staying out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.
