In the not too distant future, Tokyo's Section Nine security force hunts for a hacker known only as the Puppet Master. Leading the investigation is cyborg agent Major Motoko Kusanagi, far more powerful than her human appearance would suggest. And yet as the Puppet Master leaves a trail of victims robbed of their memories, Kusanagi ponders the very nature of her existence: is she purely an artificial construct, or is there more? Widely considered to be one of the best anime films of all time, Ghost in the Shell offers a disturbing, provocative vision of the future that feels increasingly prescient with each passing year.
