Two years after the end of Final Fantasy VII the world is starting to
get back on it's feet and is working towards a new future. However,

men that seem to be seeking Jenova. Cloud and his friends from the
orginal game must once again reunite to combat the new threat.
Earth is a desolate wasteland in Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within.
Humanity has been decimated by an invasion of Phantoms, insubstantial
aliens that extract and devour the spirits of living things. The few
remaining humans have retreated to a handful of cities that are
protected by massive bio-energy shields. The beautiful Dr. Aki Ross and
her mentor Dr. Sid have discovered that the energy signatures of eight
key Earth spirits can cancel out and destroy the Phantoms. With the
help of Captain Edwards and his band of marines, they must scour the
globe for the last two remaining spirits before General Hein
manipulates the refugee government into attacking the aliens with an
orbital laser that may also destroy the Earth.
Naomi Armitage, her husband Ross, and their daughter Yoko are spending
a nice, quite life in a nice part of Mars with new names.
Unfortunately, troops have raided a Third Type facility slaughtering
not only the Armitage robots, but killing the human staff as well. Now
Naomi must cast off her duties as wife and mother and resume her role
as unofficial detective. With political debate heating up over the
issue of robots being given the same rights as humans, things have
never been more dangerous for Naomi nor her family.
The trail leads Naomi to Earth and to Chicago while Ross is
recruited to represent a Martian interest to participate in a vote for
robot rights. However, with the introduction of two Armitage-type
assassin robots, things have gone from bad to worse.
Late one night, Afro is suddenly attacked by Jinno. However, he is
unable to protect himself, and Jinno drags him nearby to his father's
grave, where a woman named Sio awaits. She proceeds to take the Number
One headband that he possesses, as well as the remains of his dead
father's skull. Before leaving, she tells him to seek and obtain the
Number Two headband, if he wants the right to take back his father's
remains. With that, Afro must once again embark on a path of violence
in order to let his father rest in peace once again.
