“Alita: Battle Angel” is the real-life adaptation of the same manga by Yukito Kishiro. The sci-fi end-time film takes place in the 26th century – a time of despair in which the earth is almost completely devastated and people and cyborg live almost equally together. The mechanic dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz) finds the head of a female cyborg and reconstructs it. The girl has no memory of her past life. From then on he draws Alita (Rosa Salazar) – as he calls her – as his daughter. Behind her hides a dangerous weapon, as the two soon find out. She uses her extraordinary combat skills as a bounty hunter.
