A marvel of art and technology, Mollybot is an almost perfect and affordable soulmate. When her creator goes off in search of the last missing piece to her soul, her machinery is left vulnerable to the commercial and jealous side of creation. Her body and programming are threatened. With only Alan Turing at her side, can Mollybot scale the distance between robot and human, subject and self?
