Synopsis

In the desolate outskirts of New York City, two mercenaries - Deunan and her cyborg partner Briareos - are sent on a seemingly mundane recon mission. During the operation, however, they end up rescuing two strangers in peril, who claim to have come from a 'utopian' city Olympus. They are tasked with stopping a new menace of war, but powerful warlords Talos and Two Horns appear to stand in their way. Will the duo be able to save humanity’s last hope?
