The movie runs 111 minutes and is available on both English and Spanish languages. The story begins in a penurious ghetto area with a man typing on his typewriter. The year is 2025 when a company known as The Union has successfully created a means to live longer with the use of bio-mechanical organs that can replace damaged and dying organs. People who had sufficient money or good credit was given the power to escape the clutches of death and delay their passing by having a weak heart or damaged liver replaced with a new one. However, if a customer fails to pay the amount in a three month grace period, agents known as the Repo Men will be assigned to reclaim the artificial organ. The repossession process nearly always leads to the death of the individual. Remy and Jake are Repo Men and best friends. They are recognized as the most elite of the Union's Repo Men. Unfortunately, Remy's wife, Carol, is unhappy with what his husband does for a living. She encourages him to transfer to the sales department, which involves office work rather than repossessing organs and killing people. One night, Remy and Jake clear out a Nest, a hidden camp for people who've fallen behind on their payments. Back in base, Frank, their boss and Union's executive, offers the two a promotion to become full time raid leaders. Remy drops the job offer and is about to inquire about a job in sales, but is unable to do so when Jake interrupts.
