Story: A young blade runner 2049 ‘s discovery of a long-buried secret leads him to track down former blade runner Rick Deckard, who’s been missing for thirty years.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
K seeks out Dr. Ana Stelline, a designer of replicant memories, who confirms that his memory of the orphanage is real. This leads K to believe that he is Rachael’s son. At LAPD headquarters, K fails an obedience test, but claims that he failed because he was emotional after completing his mission to kill the child. Joshi gives him 48 hours before the test is repeated. K decides to flee, and transfers Joi to a mobile emitter on her request. K has the wooden horse analyzed, which reveals traces of radiation that lead him to the ruins of Las Vegas. There he finds Deckard, who reveals that he is the father of Rachael’s child and that he scrambled the birth records to protect the child’s identity before leaving it in the custody of the replicant freedom movement.
After killing Joshi, Luv and her men track K to Deckard’s location. They kidnap Deckard, destroy Joi and leave K to die. K is rescued by the replicant freedom movement and their leader Freysa informs him that Rachael’s child is female. Freysa tells K that their cause is worth dying for and that they are more human than humans. In order to ensure that Deckard does not lead Wallace to Rachael’s daughter or to the replicant freedom movement, Freysa asks K to kill Deckard. Meanwhile, Deckard is brought before Wallace, who offers him a clone of Rachael as a reward for revealing what he knows. When Deckard refuses, Wallace orders Luv to escort Deckard off-world to be tortured for information.
