In Johannesburg South Africa there is a mysterious vehicle that is hanging over the city. It turns out that it is a alien spacecraft that is stuck on Earth. Since it cannot work, the aliens on it go down to the land and settle in an area of the city. After a while the government of South Africa decides to allow them to stay in the city and give them their own neighborhood known as District 9. Things are going okay but the government wants to do studies on them. During the studies, the military along with a group of government officials go to the District to check up on the aliens. One man who is in charge of the group goes there as well to lead the study. Unfortunately the aliens get violent and a struggle ensues due to some aliens being ordered to be evicted from their homes.

Once they discover that the man who was in charge of the division that deals with the aliens, has the ability to fire their superior weapons, they try to force him to help them eliminate the aliens.
