Blade Runner follows the noir adventures of Rick Deckard, a police officer and the titular blade runner, in the grim industrial cityscape of Earth's future. Deckard hunts replicants, artificial humans built and programmed to resemble the real thing, but rendered illegal on Earth because of their strength and tendency to run amok. Deckard grapples with his doubts about the morality of his job while the replicants themselves struggle to find a solution to their artificially short lifespans.
