Evil arrives on Earth every 5000 years to spread chaos and destruction so that the world can be recreated. Scientists have managed to clone a woman made of the "fifth element," Leeloo, which represents the only chance of survival. In the year 2263, Brooklyn cabbie Korben Dallas must see her safely to a secret location where Father Vito Cornelius will perform a special rite that can prevent Evil from spreading. Meanwhile, Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg, a mercenary for Evil, leads a band of aliens to find Leeloo. Dallas must use his skills as a former government agent and with the help of the fast-talking Ruby Rhod, a TV show host, evade the villains to save Leeloo and the world.
