When hordes of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the Pacific Ocean, a war begins that takes millions of lives and consumes all of humanity’s resources. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special weapon is created: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled by two pilots locked in a neural bridge that allows them to share memories, instincts, and fighting skills.
