Alita: Battle Angel is set a few centuries in the future. An abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg to his clinic. When Alita awakens, she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world in which she finds herself.

Her street-smart new friend, Hugo (Keean Johnson), offers to help trigger her memories.
