In 2019, humans have genetically engineered replicants, which are humans who are genetically designed for labour and entertainment purposes. After a replicant uprising on an off-world mining colony; replicants are declared illegal on earth. By law, any replicant found on earth must be hunted down and killed by a special execution squad colloquially referred to as Blade Runners. Rick Deckard is a Blade Runner who is tasked to hunt down and execute a group of replicants who have made it to earth to try and extend their lifespan. Since replicants only have a 4 year life span, and this group is near the end, they are especially dangerous. To add insult to injury, these replicants are Nexus 6 generation, making them almost indistinguishable from humans.
