In 2517 earth has been left behind, and humankind has moved onto other planets.  The new worlds are governed by the Alliance, a totalitarian regime that has repeatedly destroyed its opponents.  The Alliance captured Dr. Simon's (Sean Maher) sister, River (Summer Glau) and performed experimental surgery on her, giving her extraordinary powers.

When Dr. Simon reclaims River, the Alliance is furious and sends cannibalistic creatures called Reavers to attack.  Simon and River find temporary shelter with Captain Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) aboard his ship, Serenity.  River is not the same young girl Simon knew before her imprisonment though, and things go haywire fast.
