Andromache ("Andy") of Scythia, Booker (Matthias Schoenaerts), Joe (Marwan Kenzari), and Nicky (Luca Marinelli) are centuries old warriors with regenerative healing abilities who use their vast experience to help people. Former CIA operative Copley hires them ostensibly to rescue a group of kidnapped children in South Sudan. During the mission, however, they are ambushed by a squad of soldiers. After healing their wounds and killing their attackers, they find recording equipment and realize that Copley set them up to expose their apparent immortality.
Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, U.S. Marine Nile Freeman (KiKi Layne) has her throat slit while taking down a military target, only to recover without a scratch. Soon after, she shares a disturbing dream with the other immortals, who are then alerted to her existence. Despite the team's world-weariness, Andy (Charlize Theron) tracks down and rescues Freeman before military personnel can abduct her for testing.
Copley shows video of the ambush to pharmaceutical executive Steven Merrick (Harry Melling), who sends operatives to capture the team and learn the secrets of their abilities. Andy brings Nile to France, where Nile meets the rest of their team. She is told about Quynh (Van Veronica Ngo), the first of Andy's comrades, who centuries ago was captured by priests and cast into the sea in an iron coffin, and has been continually drowning ever since for more than 500 years. The group also reveals that they are not truly immortal: their ability to heal eventually stops without warning.
The group are ambushed by Merrick's forces; Joe and Nicky are captured while a heavily wounded Booker is left behind as bait for Andy. Andy instead kills their assailants, but soon afterward discovers that she has lost her immortality, as the injuries she sustained in the fight have not healed. Booker locates Copley, but Nile declines to join them to go after him, unable to accept her destiny to outlive her friends and family.
