Amy is a Von Neumann humanoid - grown in a stable family environment, with her robot mother and human father. But alone of all her kind, known as the von Neumanns, her human-protecting failsafe has stopped working. Soon she is on the run from the law, and worse - everyone's after her, some to use her as a weapon, others to destroy her.
