In a {{Zeerust}} future, an elderly Japanese detective and his young assistant arrive in Metropolis, the most advanced and wealthiest city in the world, on the trail of a wanted MadScientist and organ trafficker. Assigned a robot detective as a guide, they track the man down to a lab in the undercity just to see it destroyed by a KnightTemplar with an anti-robot agenda. Out of the wreckage crawls the doctor's greatest achievement, a [[InnocentFanserviceGirl naked and inhumanly beautiful young woman]] with apparently no idea who she is, what she is, how she got there or what clothes are. The assistant and the girl then get separated from his mentor when the floor gives way.

As the film unfolds, the mentor attempts to find his ward, the assistant attempts to find out both the nature of the girl and how to escape from the undercity, the city politics take a turn for the worst, and the city's most powerful man seeks the girl as a prop in a somewhat messianic agenda.
