A double bill of Anime films. In 'Patlabor 1', the year is 1999, and Tokyo's Mobile Police have a new weapon in the war on crime - advanced robots called Labors are used to combat the criminals who would use the new technology for illegal means. The suicide of a mysterious man on the massive Babylon Project construction site sets off a cascade of events that may signal the destruction of Tokyo. When Patlabor cops Noah and Azura investigate a wave of rogue Labors rampaging across the city, they uncover a sinister revenge plot to infect Tokyo's population with a deadly virus. 'Patlabor 2', is set in 2002, three years after the original film. The destruction of the United Nations Labour Team in South East Asia begins a process of a terrorist plan that threatens to send shock-waves through Japan's military and political institutions.
