The seemingly endless war between humans and their robot creations is at a crossroads.
A successful military commander, Michael Shaw, changes the stakes for both sides and the bitter conflict enters a new phase. But Michael compromises his career by taking in a Rob "child" who bears an uncanny resemblance to his lost daughter, Ellen.
Inevitably, the child grows up, and the woman he calls his daughter reverts to her origins. Michael is left with a terrible choice, a choice which leads father to track daughter through a war-torn land, and to question everything he has believed about himself and his world.
The Other is both a compelling story of pursuit and survival, and a deeply moving journey into the very heart of what it means to be human.
Who are we, really, and what might we one day become?
