Set in a not too distant future, Avatar follows a paraplegic Marine named Jake Sully. Sully is sent to infiltrate the indigenous creatures of the planet Pandora, the Na’vi people – blue humanoid aliens – thanks to the help of incredible technology that allows Sully to use an ‘avatar’; man-made bodies that humans can control with their minds that look exactly like the Na’vi’s bodies.
However, when Sully begins to fall in love with a Na’vi woman, he must decide where his true loyalties lie.
