Former LAPD Captain Jon Diaz leads a rag-tag militia of humanoid rebels against oppressive government forces in a desperate attempt to avert America’s second civil war.
During the Russian War of 2060, U.S. Military scientists launched a secret program designed to create the world’s first army of AI embedded super-soldiers. When chronic, random acts of violence began to plague the subjects, the military terminated the project, releasing the defective humanoids into civilian life. The publics fear, prejudice, and violence that ensued divided the country and now seems likely to ignite another civil war.
Trying to quell the violence and protect the human population, Congress passes the Humanoid Act, creating a new class of beings and segregating the humanoids from the general population.
Riots erupt, and a politically-motivated plot surfaces, designed to eliminate the humanoid population.
Unwillingly thrust into the conflict, Jon Diaz struggles to protect his family from the growing violence while facing insurmountable odds that risks not only his life, but that of the entire humanoid race as the rebel force battles the powerful, corrupt General Thurmond.
