SYNOPSIS

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence is set in 2032, when the line between humans and machines has been blurred almost beyond distinction. Batou is a cyborg. His body is artificial: the only remnants of his humanity are traces of his brain...and the memories of a woman called The Major. A detective for the government's covert anti-terrorism unit, Public Security Section 9, Batou is investigating the case of a gynoid, a hyper-realistic female robot created specifically for sexual companionship, who malfunctions and slaughters her owner. As Batou delves deeper into the investigation, questions arise about humanity's need to immortalize its image in dolls (robots with no human elements at all). The answers to those questions lead to the shocking truth behind the crime...and quite possibly the very meaning of life.

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence is the second anime feature to be released under the Go Fish Pictures banner, a division of Dreamworks Pictures.

Dreamworks SKG was formed in October, 1994, by its three principal partners-Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen-to produce live-action motion pictures; animated feature films; network and cable television programming; home video entertainment; records; books, toys; and consumer products.
