Spoiler Points for Babylon A.D.
How does it begin?
• Toorop (Vin Diesel), a mercenary, is taken from his home by gangsters in the employ of Gordky (Gérard Depardieu). He is then hired to deliver a package to the New York City. He's given an injectable UN passport to get into the United States where he is a fugitive form the law. He is airlifted by helicopter transporting a car to the remote mountainous convent where he learns the package is a girl named Aurora (Mélanie Thierry) and her governess, Sister Rebeka (Michelle Yeoh).
• Step one is to take the train to the border.

What's so special about Aurora?
• At the train station, Aurora has a mysterious encounter with some caged tigers, and ultimately, she ascertains the station will be blown up. She manages to help Toorop and Sister Rebekah get out of the mess alive, but Toorup wants to know whw she did it.
• She has an uncanny ability to tell when people are going to harm her.
• She has been able to speak 17 languages from age 2.
• She can pilot a Russian submarine from memory.
• She has no tolerance for violence or killing.

All of this adds up to one and only one thing: She is actually the genetically engineered super child of the High Priestess of the Neolites who wants the now pregnant with twins girl to advance the cause of her religion and aspirations for world domination. Ah, but the physician who engineered her wants her back too.

How does the film end?
• Badly!
• The trio arrives safely in Manhattan to a really cool and futuristic apartment. Shortly thereafter a physician arrives and does something to her that makes her pregnant. And she knows it.
• There is an all out street fight between men working for her mother and her father that catches Sister Rebeka in the crossfire.
• A guided missile takes out Toorop, but Aurora gets away. Her father, fixes Toorop up with spare parts and explains how Aurora came to be. He uses his technology to replay Toorop's memories of his near death to discover where Aurora has gone. His memories remind Toorop that she's probably gone to his father's farm. He heads up there to find her, but her mother also sends her forces. Toorop manages to help them escape, but Aurora is lost. The final scene shows Toorop with two little twin girls that look really nothing alike. They call him "Daddy". Then it ends.
