Poster

In a cyberpunk vision of the future, man has developed the technology to create replicants, human clones used to serve in the colonies outside Earth but with fixed lifespans. In Los Angeles, 2019, Deckard is a Blade Runner, a cop who specializes in terminating replicants. While originally in retirement, he is forced to re-enter the force when four replicants escape from an off-world colony to Earth. However, it turns out that his mission becomes an opportunity for him to learn what it really means to be human.
