Movie Plot :
In District 9, In 1982, an alien ship inexplicably stops over Johannesburg. When investigation teams enter the ship, they discover a population of sick and malnourished extraterrestrials, who are nicknamed “prawns”, based on their physical appearance. The South African government confines the aliens to “District 9”, a government camp located outside of Johannesburg. Twenty-eight years later, in 2010, following constant unrest and riots between the aliens and the locals living near District 9, the government hires private military company Multinational United (MNU) to relocate the aliens to a new internment camp. Piet Smit (Louis Minnaar), an MNU executive, appoints his son in law, Wikus van de Merwe (Sharlto Copley), a nebbish Afrikaner bureaucrat, to lead the relocation. Assisted by armed MNU personnel, the relocation uses bribes of cat food, which has an addictive quality for the aliens, as well as force, sometimes even deadly.
As the relocation progresses, three aliens — Christopher Johnson (Jason Cope), his son, and a friend — are seen scavenging pieces of alien technology, from which they finish distilling a fluid which they collect in a small canister. During an inspection, Wikus discovers and confiscates the canister from the shack of Christopher’s friend, but accidentally sprays some of the fluid onto his own face, which causes him to have a momentary seizure. Christopher’s friend is subsequently killed by Koobus Venter (David James), a sadistic mercenary soldier employed by MNU.
Under the fluid’s influence, Wikus’ body tissue deteriorates, being replaced with alien tissue starting with his left arm, which he injured after being exposed to the fluid. As he deteriorates, Wikus is taken to a local hospital, where his mutation is revealed. He is then detained and transported to MNU headquarters for brutal experimentation, where it is discovered that his now chimeric DNA grants him the ability to use his transformed arm to wield alien weapons, supposed to be biologically restricted to the aliens. Seeing his tissue in its current state as a means to finally allow them to enable the use of alien weapons, Smit agrees for his scientists to vivisect Wikus, but he is able to overpower them and escapes the facility. Smit orders Venter and his men to hunt Wikus down, while a smear story is broadcast, claiming that Wikus is a wanted fugitive who has contracted a sexually transmitted disease from sex with prawns. The story spreads, even reaching Wikus’ wife, Tania (Vanessa Haywood).
