Around year 2020 , thanks to advanced technology, the world is now without borders. Society is entirely dominated by the web and is kept under the control of a totally new form of police. The secret agent of the future is not human anymore. He gets his powers from the high ways of information. This is how Puppet Master becomes the perfect international spy. But soon he feels he is a/lve and makes his claim for a real physical existence, which is refused by his creators. A chase is organised to capture him. On his way, he meets major Motoko Kusanagi, a police woman who is the only one to decide whether Puppet Master will reach his aim: to become a human and live outside the web.
