In the near future, humanoid servants called synthetics—or synths—have been created to help busy families simplify their lives. But will these perfect servants stay compliant forever?
When Joe Hawkins (Tom Goodman-Hill, The Imitation Game) buys synth Anita (Gemma Chan, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), he hopes it will relieve the pressure on his lawyer wife, Laura (Katherine Parkinson, The IT Crowd). Although Anita is a hit with Joe’s young children, Laura feels uneasy about sharing her home with a synth.
Meanwhile, retired synth engineer George (Oscar® winner William Hurt, A History of Violence) refuses to dispose of his beloved but malfunctioning synth, Odi (Will Tudor, Game of Thrones). And mysterious Leo (Colin Morgan, Merlin) hides secrets that could transform the future of synth technology.
Thought-provoking and thrilling, this “ultimate A.I. thought experiment” (The Atlantic) explores the intersection of man and machine with emotional depth and pulse-pounding tension.
