The dawn of artificially intelligent androids is upon us, and one man must choose between synthetic freedom and the future of humankind.
In the distant future: a controlling corporate government,Govcentral, aims to eliminate a newly minted faction of rebels called the emancipators whose goal is to provide freedom for all synths. Synths are artificially intelligent bio-mechanical androids that are restricted into subservient roles within every strata of human society. Human, but not human- they have personalities and identities yet have no true freedoms in regards to choice and wants. They exist for one purpose alone: to serve. The emancipators believe that restricting the synths, who are capable of true sentience like any human being is tantamount to slavery, and wish to break their bonds and allow them to have the ability to control their own destiny.
