The Mother Code
Set on a near-future Earth inhospitable to all human life, The Mother Code explores what it means to be a mother in a precarious world. With little hope for human survival, U.S. scientists devise a plan to place genetically engineered children in the cocoons of robots programmed with an artificial intelligence, the Mother Code, that enables the machines to incubate, birth, and raise them.
When government survivors decide that the machines must be destroyed, one boy who was raised and nurtured by a robot must fight to save the only parent he has ever known.
