[ominous synth music playing]

[ominous strings playing]

[woman] Earth...

before the war...

Life stretched out...

to every corner

of the planet.

It became a world filled

with innovation and opportunity.

Huge leaps in science saw humanity

achieve unimaginable results.

Robotics became the way

of the future.

Artificial intelligence

became the new religion.

We were the synthetic messiahs.

But such power...

in the proximity of primitives

only leads to one outcome:


- [inaudible]

- [music continues]

Bombs rained down...

wave after wave

after wave.

The world entered

a new Dark Age.

[fire crackling]

From the ash,

a great sickness was born:

The Red Fever.

Nations fell.

Societies collapsed.

Tribal warlords used us as

weapons against each other.

I was one of the last

synthetics to survive.

In the end, everyone lost.

I wanted life.

The humans wanted death.

I cannot be part of that.

I will not.

Delete entry and purge

all memories.

Manual override confirmed.

Initiate hibernation mode.

Where are the kids?

Get up! Up! Go on!

[man] Right now! Right now!

You've got to go!

[revving engine]


Go back to whatever hellhole

you crawled out of!


I ain't seen a gun working

since the war!

Go ahead and shoot, old man!

[boy screaming]

No, Poppy!

- [man laughing]

- Poppy, no!

- [man screaming]

- [boy] Help me!

[music fades]

[man] You're sure

this is the place?

[man 2] Yeah, she's here.

I know it.


[light buzzing]

[chains rattling]

[ominous synth music playing]

[man] What was this place?

[man 2] Place used to be

the future.

Now it's just dust.

[man 3] Hey!

Come here.

This is the one we want.

Where is she?

Come on.

[ominous strings playing]

[device beeping]

[device surges]

Wake up.

What do you see?

Who are you?

I'm the one

who gave you life.

Where am I?

I've been looking for you

for a long time.

[sinister laughing]

[woman whispering] No.

[music continues]

[insects trilling]

[waves in distance]

[birds tweeting]


[boy] Come on! Wait up!

[woman] Careful, Billy! Not too

close to the water, please!

Hey, Rico!


- How you feeling?

- Good.

How's she?


She just asked about you.

What you got there?

Still believe

in that magic, huh?

It can save her.

Paradise Beach ain't real.

I don't know.

I guess I just...

have a feeling

it's out there.

Go see her.

[birds tweeting]

[indistinct chatter]

[children laughing]

- Hey.

- Mm.

- You okay?

- Mm-hmm.

Pour me some tea,

will you?


I remember when you were

just like those little ones.

You know there's medicine.

Paradise Beach.
