    In 2055, New York City has been remade. Holobots - holographic projections - roam the streets, in many cases nearly indistinguishable from real human beings. The holobots are marketing tools owned by Kingore, CEO of Holobots, Inc., the megacorporation seeking to produce the most realistic holobots. The genius behind Kingore's efforts is programmer Freddie C, whose quest for holobot realism has created fame that threatens to eclipse that of his employer. But something has gone wrong in Freddie's quest. Stunned, alone, and confused he only knows he must find Lucinda, the light of his life.
