In the not-too-distant future, in the aftermath of a global war between humanity and the Machines, the only threat to the fragile peace are the Sleepers. These androids appear human, and believe themselves to be human -- but they are living bombs, land mines left over from the Machine War. When Yusef discovers his beloved wife Ayana is a Sleeper, he has only one choice: flee with her to the border of the Machine world--one step ahead of the Human Defense Force --and pray they can make it before time runs out.
