Nanotechnology made humanity immortal, and the resulting population explosion pushed the Solar System's resources to the breaking point.

With the tournament looming, Alita and her comrades find themselves caught between a spacefaring refuge for young innocents and a bloodthirsty mob intent on killing the children for sport!
