Plot Synopsis for Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 Sustainable War

Major and her squad are in the American Empire, working as a mercenary force known as the GHOST, more than a decade after the events of ‘Solid State Society.’ They are currently associated with the security business Obsidian. In 2042, the world’s four most powerful political organizations — the American Empire, China, the Russian Federation, and the European Union — resolved to start a war among themselves to resurrect the global economy. The fight was dubbed the “Sustainable War,” and it was waged between AIs with little human losses. However, the battle prompted the Global Simultaneous Default in 2044, an economic collapse that obliterated all financial data. The Sustainable War eventually became the only way for the four instigators to maintain their economies running well. While ordinary people’s livelihoods were ruined, the one percent continued to prosper as a result of war revenues.

At the opening of the film, GHOST starts a mission in Palm Springs, California, which has become one of the Sustainable War’s numerous battlefields. Major and her team’s originally uncomplicated objective of preventing raiders from attacking a gated enclave turns tricky when it is found that the invaders were provided with weapons by a one-percenter. Following the mission’s failure, GHOST is approached by NSA agent John Smith, who compels the squad to carry out a retrieval mission for one-percenter Patrick Huge. GHOST swiftly realizes throughout the mission that Huge is not human and is obliged to kill him.

Meanwhile, in Japan, Daisuke Aramaki assigns Togusa the mission of locating his old Public Security Section 9 colleagues in the United States. Togusa speaks with Obsidian’s leader and reports back to Aramaki. Aramaki intervenes just as Smith is ready to neutralize Major and the others in order to keep Huge’s identity hidden. Smith then grudgingly explains that Huge was part of a hazardous group of creatures known as posthumans by the American government and transports them to a secret facility that contains one such entity. The posthuman tries to kill everyone while GHOST is there and is slain by Batou. GHOST then returns to Japan to deal with three posthumans who have settled there.

Major discovers he is not human after linking her cyberbrain to Huge’s. The American Empire’s administration is actively examining the entities, but even they don’t know much about them. The transition, which is invariably accompanied by a fever, has utterly altered the cyberbrains of the posthumans. They achieve an unprecedented level of intelligence and cognitive quickness, even among complete cyborgs. They appear to despise specific human tribes. It is discovered that posthumans are to blame for the Global Simultaneous Default. Huge was the one-percenter who supplied the raiders with weaponry. Gary Harts, the secret NSA facility’s post-human, attempted to launch a nuclear missile against the Russian Federation.

In Japan, posthuman and boxer Sanji Yaguchi targets corrupted government leaders and appears to be after Japanese Prime Minister Chris Otomo Tate to learn about his country’s ambitions. Meanwhile, Takashi Shimamura, a high school student, appears to have more control over himself than the others and chooses to explore his buried memories. Suzuka Mizukane, the third character, has yet to emerge in the ‘Ghost in the Shell’ universe.

What Happens to Togusa? What Exactly Is Think Pol?

While attempting to study the information discovered at the boy’s home, Togusa is exposed to Shimamura’s posthuman codes. It establishes a link between the two. The files are eventually discovered to be a program designed to recover long-forgotten memories. Shimamura built Think Pol, a program he used to take control of his students’ cyberbrains and kill the instructor who sexually attacked Shimamura’s buddy Kanami, who eventually committed suicide. He called the show “Thought Police” after a phrase from his favorite book, George Orwell’s “1984”.

Togusa learns from Shimamura’s memories that the youngster obtained the book from an airborne trooper. Yuzu, his cousin, later came into three government employees attempting to bury a body. When the airborne trooper arrived, all three men were slain, but Yuzu was killed in the gunfire. Shimamura afterwards joined the airborne soldier group. As Togusa witnesses this, his cyberbrain and Shimamura’s appear to cross the time barrier. Shimamura talks with Togusa and invites him to accompany him while he investigates his past. Togusa most likely speaks to Batou from Shimamura’s memories near the end of the film.

Why is Sanji Yaguchi not attacking Prime Minister Tate?

Sanji Yaguchi, as previously said, targets corrupt government officials. He also murders Tate’s father-in-law because, as the manager of a company that acquired a wide range of contracts in the grandiose project of reconstructing Tokyo, he was implicated in bribery and refugee exploitation. Despite having the opportunity, Yaguchi does not assault the prime minister. Major later apprehends him and turns him over to the NSA.

Since Tate took office, there has been significant speculation about his intentions. Because Tate was born in America, a sizable segment of the Japanese population believes he is an American puppet. Although Smith tries to coerce Tate into being just that, the latter insists on restoring Japan to its former splendor. This is most likely the reason Yaguchi spares Tate. It appears that the posthumans are waging a larger campaign against the four major political powers. The posthumans appear to despise not all of humanity, but only select corrupt and power-hungry factions.
