In 2049, with the powerful Tyrell Corporation missed and its science under the control of the visionary (no pun intended, since he is blind) scientist Niander Wallace (Jared Leto), the bio-engineered replicants, Nexus-8, seem to have integrated seamlessly into society. Purposed to eradicate the outdated rebellious Nexus models, L.A.P.D.’s Officer “K” (Ryan Gosling) – a new generation of Blade Runners – stumbles upon a dangerous and well-hidden secret that could easily undermine an already frail stability in the world. As “K” puts the pieces together, he will soon realize that the key element that binds everything together in this mystery is the retired Blade Runner, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has either disappeared or gone underground. But is “K” allowed to unearth the truth?
