The year is 2029. John Connor, leader of the resistance continues the war against the machines.

On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Connor sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese back through time to save his mother’s life and ensure his own existence.

This Terminator has then trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject.
