A ball of Lightning appears on a bridge, then a naked woman falls from the bridge. “Grace”, a time traveling soldier, takes out some federales and steals clothes from the teenagers that helped her. Dani Ramos (Reyes) is a young woman who works with her brother Diego (Diego Boneta) at the auto plant and also takes care of him and her father. Another ball of lightning appears above an apartment building and a man falls to the ground; another Terminator is here. The Terminator is a Rev-9 and shows up at the Ramos home hunting Dani.
Grace, tracks down Dani at the auto plant and tells her and Diego to come with her or they will die in 30 seconds. The Rev-9 aka Gabriel (Gabriel Luna) also appears at the plant as Mr. Ramos in an attempt to kill Dani. Grace get Dani and Diego out and a car chase begins through the streets of Mexico City ending at a bridge where the Rev-9 corners Grace and the kids. The Rev-9 is a different type of Terminator, the 9 is made of both liquid metal and a steel skeletal form that are able to separate and work in tandem as a team. Just as the Terminator charges a truck pulls on to the bridge and a woman with a bazooka gets out and blasts both halves of the Terminator. It is Sarah Conner.
Sarah Conner, the original Terminator target, appears on the bridge just in time to save Dani and Grace. Diego was impaled in the chase and was killed by the Terminator. Sarah explained she is wanted across the country so she is off the grid hunting Terminators. Sarah explained that she gets mysterious texts with coordinates that a Terminator will appear. Grace shows Sarah a set of coordinates that were tattooed on her in case she needs help keeping Dani alive, it is the same location that is texting Sarah.
