The City of Toronto is run by a powerful corporation called Rekall, which produces virtual vacations, memories, and experiences. David Hume, a cop who specializes in investigating android crimes, is haunted by his past and the memories of his wife and son who were killed in an accident. Ian Farve, a corporate agent for Rekall, is assigned to work with Hume to solve a case involving a rogue android.
As the two investigate, they discover a conspiracy involving Rekall and its chairman, Jonathan Doors, who is planning to use a dangerous virus to destroy all androids and gain control of the city.
