Agatha, Arthur, and Ash, children of drugs addicts (as narrated by Lara) play hide in seek in some planes. Scientists saved them from being brain dead. They were given "a gift." They run through a field toward a man with a device in his hand.
The three kids are hooked up to a machine in a laboratory. They call out adjectives, numbers, and colors which the scientists are about to hold up. The kids can predict bits of the future. Agatha slams on the glass, asking them to stop before doing the test again. The two young boys yell, "Down on your knees!" and "Let's see that pretty smile!" from their chairs. The scientists try to sedate the kids. The young boy tries to stop the scientist from sedating him and asks if she can see the murder, too. They see murders 100 days in advance. The government took the kids and used them to solve crimes. They never formed memories except the visions they acquired. They were eventually sent off to hide from the world, but they couldn't hide forever.
A man sits at a bar and wins a game. He tells the bartender she's going to need a mop before someone spills a tray next to him. He starts having a painful flash 40 minutes ahead of his time of a murder. He beings drawing what he saw then rushes to Bartlet Plaza where he sneaks onto the subway. He's wearing a 2054 Washington Nationals World Series hat. Washington D.C. - 2065, the bottom of the screen says.
He finds himself in a crowded plaza . He has three minutes to stop the murder and takes off toward the building he sees it happening in. He enters the wrong room and rushes to another place. He doesn't get there in time and a woman is thrown from a window onto a bus. He looks away.
Lara puts electronic contacts and ear pieces in. She is investigating the same murder. She reenacts the murder scene which culminates with the assumption of the victim trying to protect someone and allowing her freefall to happen. Lara finds a young girl under the cabinet. The man in the Nationals hat looks on. He hides away and injects something into his neck.
On a tour, a guide narrates the Precogs as they used to work while kids take selfies with a purple drone. Lara walks through as the man in the Nationals hat follows. She pushes him against a wall. His face is wrinkled and worn. He gives her the sketch he made of the murderer before stabbing her in the leg and running away.
Blake mocks Lara Vega's efforts to solve the murder. He claims he has a lead. He says the victim was living in a building full of murderers. She shows him the drawing and he takes it and runs it through a database. They find a match. An illegal bio-weapons dealer who has previously killed someone by throwing them out of a window.
At a construction site, a man inhales something as three men zip line above him. Vega holds her gun to his head. "You have no idea what's coming," he says as he steps under a falling metal pillar.
Dash and Agatha argue about their involvement in preventing murders. Agatha insists he has to stop getting involved. She tells him his gift in incomplete without his brother and he can't prevent murders on his own. She wants him to come home. He hangs up and her hologram fades.
Vega and Blake recount the suicidal lead. Vega shows off the murder drawings in the book and Blake concludes he must have hacked the database, but Blanca insists nobody can hack her database.They being a search of the area. Vega gets Blake to leave for an investigation on his own so she can approach Dash on her own.
Dash, who is sitting at a diner, is startled by Vega's company. She tells Dash that she found the murderer she tipped him off and threatens to bring him in. He falls out of his chair and she tries to help him and he asks her if she can see murder.
He wakes up and the diner patrons are crowding around him. Vega figures out his secret and brings him outside. They talk about his gift and he explains that he can see what happens, Arthur gets the names, and Agatha has the strongest power of all three. They work better as a hive. He is upset by the fact that he can't help no matter much he tries because he can't see enough. Vega wants to stop murders. She hands him his sketchbook and he sketches the Mayor.
The Mayor and his wife introduce themselves. A bearded man looks on from behind them as the Mayor, Vega, and Dash leave. He plans on installing a new system of monitoring called "Hawkeye," rather than rely on the Precog "freaks." They find the man from earlier, who Dash sketch whom later killed himself, who is flagged in the system for questionable searches about the Mayor's rally three hours after his suicide.
Dash and Vega walk through an asylum of people who Dash put away for would-be murders. A woman asks Vega and Dash if they need help. Her father was put away for the pre-cogs seeing him murdering his wife. His mother has since passed away and her father's brain is fried from containment. He's on the roof, apparently controlling birds with a scientific glove. Vega questions him about the case. He only cares about his passenger pigeons, which he brought back from extinction. There is an implant embedded in the birds' skulls which allows him to control them. The man leaps from the roof and runs down a staircase. Vega pursues.
Vega and Dash are at Dash's house. Her family comes home and suspects them of being involved. Her mom talks about how when she was young, she used Tinder. Later, Dash goes through Vega's father's vinyl collection. Vega reveals her father was killed - her motivating factor to stop crimes. She explains the young boy who entered is her brother, not her son. Dash explains that he doesn't remember anything since he was 14 and got hooked up to machines. His brother was the first to leave the island. Arthur is selfish and won't help them. Vega says they used to be able to see inside Dash's head and Dash suggests they might still be able to.
Vega and Dash go to a man's house. The man is extremely excited at the chance of working with Dash. He explains that the Precogs didn't all see the future the same way meaning the future isn't set in stone. He hooks Dash up to the reader and tries to see what Dash sees. It hurts but he doesn't want to stop. They see the pigeons then the mayor's wife dying and multiple others. Lots of dead bodies. They determine it's an attack. Rutledge plans on using the birds to attack the rally. Dash says they need to go to Arthur.
Arthur, now an estate planner, arrogantly welcomes Dash. Arthur recites Vega's name, address, and other info. He gives them the location of where they can stop the attack and they leave.
The two enter a long-abandoned building and Vega releases several drones to explore the premises. Outside, Peter Van Eyke takes the stage. Inside, Rutledge unleashes his birds for the attack. A drone finds him and he knocks it out of the air. Vega and Dash approach where Rutledge was hiding. He enters with a gun, which Dash foresees, and they stop him, but his daughter follows with another gun. Aiming it at dash, she insists Vega release her father. She does, but rolls and takes down the daughter. Dash strikes Rutledge and saves Vega.
They try to stop the birds but they need Rutledge's hand. Dash drags him over and just in time, gets the birds to return to the abandoned building. Vega tries to arrest Rutledge but Dash knocks him over a ledge to his demise because he was going to try to stab her. The daughter is also dead. Vega tells Dash he has to go, so he leaves. The Mayor thanks the police for saving his life. Blake approaches Vega and she says it was her and Blake who solved this crime together.
Going for a jog, Vega looks out at the futuristic DC skyline. Dash approaches her. Dash wants to know what's next but Vega says, "Shouldn't you be telling me?"
