The demo begins with a sprawling city, overrun with authorities in what appears like security lockdown. The camera pans out to show officials observing security footage in a video surveillance room.
One camera witnesses a massive explosion, as the action variates between the surveillance room and street level. Characters with special powers appear, taking the authorities head own in what looks like an orchestrated revolt.
One character grabs a mobile camera, looks directly into the shot and says, “YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL”. The camera fades to black and Second Son scrolls across the screen.
