While the accident grows tremendous psychic powers in Tetsuo's body, similar to those of Akira, the one who started the last World War and reduced the city to ashes, Kaneda will meet Kei, a member of a revolutionary force that will help him in fighting against the possibility that Tetsuo's powers  might awaken the cryogenized boy Akira.
