In order to try and salvage what little of the human race is left, large force-field barriers have been constructed around certain cities to repel the Phantoms.

Seeking a more permanent solution to this invasion are scientists Aki Ross and her mentor, Dr. Sid, whose investigations have revealed that there exists a form of spiritual, Gaia energy that can eradicate the Phantom's presence from this world.

Not everyone is convinced of this plan though.
