In 2003, on death row at the Longview State Correctional Facility, the criminal Marcus Wright is persuaded by the malignant Dr. Serena Kogan to contribute his body to her research, and he agrees. Only John Connor escapes an unsuccessful attack on a Skynet facility in 2018, but he discovers that Skynet is building the powerful new type T-800. Marcus emerges in the place, naked and amnesiac, out of nowhere. Marcus befriends the adolescent Kyle Reese and the girl Star, who assist him in surviving the terrible machines, and they drive in a Jeep together. Meanwhile, the resistance discovers a signal that may cause the machines to shut down, and John offers to test it. When Kyle is kidnapped by a machine and taken to Skynet’s headquarters, Marcus decides to assist the boy and proceeds to Skynet; on the way, he saves Blair Williams, who proposes that he first meet John Connor. Marcus, on the other hand, walks on a mine and is taken to the operating room, where a secret about his beginnings is revealed.
