Plot Summary: Leon is a rookie with Jeena as his partner in the AD Police, an extremely violent, anti-Boomer police division. The first story concerns a mysterious woman from Leon's past that starts to follow him. The second story is about a serial killer who kills prostitutes and viciously eviscerates them. The final story follows Billy who is a cyborg that questions his humanity, as the only flesh he possesses from his original body is his tongue.
