Set in a bleak, ravaged place called the Scrapyard under the floating sky city of Tiphares, this is the story of the relationship between Doc Ido, a cyborg physician, and the damaged robot, Alita, whose 300-year-old head he finds in a scrap pile. At first after Dic Udi rebuilds her body from spare parts, she has amnesia, but when Doc Ido is able to reconstruct more of her body and circuitry, Alita remembers that he is programmed with the "Panzer Kunst," the most dangerous cyborg fighting style. Together, Alita and Ido set out to discover the secrets of her past, as she takes on work as a bounty hunter for the Factory (the support organization for the city above), eliminating Scrap Iron City's most dangerous criminals.
- The film is based on a series of graphic novels by a Japanese artist called Kishiro.
