Adam, a hyper-intelligent AI, is cold, awkward and doesn't make sense. Mary, an overworked Botany undergrad, is paid to show him what real people are like. But despite her initial disinterest in Adam, his charming naivety grows on the ordinarily disconnected student. When an unlikely friendship blossoms between them, Mary and Adam find themselves pawns in a much darker scientific experiment. At the hands of a pair of egotistical scientists, the foundations of humanity are put to the test, for both Adam and his human creators.
