Eli is a young man who earns his living hard in a Detroit in the slam, stealing metals from abandoned buildings to get money. One day, Eli is amazed to discover an old factory where there are more dead combatants equipped with some futuristic armor. He runs away when one of them has a last spasm of life that scares him terribly. Turning back later, he no longer found any body there, but they left behind an object that seems to be a weapon of the future. He steals it and tries to use his abilities to help his brother, but he and his brother are both being watched by government agents and non-German beings.
