Raymond McCoy decides to have his body frozen after the death of his lover, Matthew, in 2020. Believing to never wake up again, Ray goes under with no hope for his future. However, Ray is woken up in 2287 by an illegally emotional robot, Cutie, where he reunites with an old friend from the past. He and Tina are now in 2287, where the remnants of humanity resides in domes with robots, designed to cater to their every need. Ray quickly discovers that the new “Eden” is not what it appears to be.

The first act is available here.
