A bit predictably considering the talent, it follows a girl whose brain can be transferred between prosthetic bodies depending on need. Surviving a terrorist incident on the way to a man-made resort island, she takes up the mission of solving the mystery behind the incident, with a scientist manipulating the naive girl.
