Producer John Woo's updating of the Japanese anime series. In the year 2133, the Third World War has devastated mankind, and has led to the creation of a utopian society in the hi-tech city of Olympus. Deunen is a female warrior from the scorched wastlelands who meets her long lost boyfriend, Briareos, who has been transformed into a half-machine cyborg. The pair's partnership is tested when Jude Tereus, a 'battle bioroid' joins their ESWAT team. Even more worrying is the fact that Tereus was constructed using Briareos's DNA, causing him to have feelings for Deunen. As Olympus gets ready to hold a global trade summit, the city is hit by a wave of terrorist cyborg attacks. With an increasing number of cyborgs rebelling, Deunen finds herself having to partner Tereus as the terrorist campaign intensifies.
Following the non-nuclear war that killed half the world's population, the city-nation of Olympus stands as a beacon of hope in a world of chaos and conflict. The utopian metropolis is governed by Gaia, a vast artificial intelligence, and administered by genetically engineered humanoids known as Bioroids, whose designer DNA suppresses strong emotions. With Bioroids being half of its population, peace and order are easily maintained. Deunan, a young female warrior, and Briareos, a veteran cyborg-soldier, are both partners and lovers. As members of E.S.W.A.T., the elite special forces serving Olympus, they are deployed whenever trouble strikes. The two fighters find their partnership tested in a new way by the arrival of a new member to their ranks - an experimental Bioroid named Tereus. Created by Gaia using DNA from Briareos, Tereus uncannily resembles Briareos before the wartime injuries that led to his becoming a cyborg. Not only does this trouble Deunan, but Briareos's DNA gives Tereus more than top-notch fighting skills; this battle-ready Bioroid is like Briareos in another way - he has also strong romantic feelings for Deunan!
