Bobo the robot cares for the elderly. But when his last charge dies the ancient caretaker finds himself cast out into the wider world beyond the retirement home. This is a world his primitive brain cannot understand, until he is forcibly upgraded by robot activists, and has an epiphany that will change human-robot relations forever: one so warped it could only have come from a machine mind.
Bobo is programmed for life in a retirement home, feeding and changing and mourning the residents there. When the home is closed down forever Bobo is cast out to make his own way in a world of hostile humans, insane robot activists, and the brutal firepower of police enforcer machines. Follow Bobo as he learns to imitate those around him, finding a way to blend into society and, ultimately, to reshape it in his own image.
