In the year 2563, a catastrophic war known as "The Fall" has left the Earth devastated.
While scouting the junkyard metropolis of Iron City, cyborg scientist Dr. Dyson Ido discovers a disembodied female cyborg with a fully intact human brain. The next day, the rebuilt cyborg wakes up with no recollection of her memories while Ido later names her "Alita" after his deceased daughter.
Alita befriends a teenage boy named Hugo, who dreams of moving to the sky city of Zalem. Hugo introduces her to the competitive sport of Motorball, a battle royale where cyborgs fight to the death while racing. Little does Alita know that Hugo and his friends spend their nights attacking cyborgs and stealing their body parts for Vector, an entrepreneur and Motorball’s creator. Meanwhile, Ido's former girlfriend Chiren pays him a visit, telling him she has found a way back to the colony of Zalem.
