Determined to liberate the mass-produced but highly intelligent robots forged in the machinery of Rossum's island factory, Helena Gory arrives in a blaze of righteousness. Soon perplexed by the robots' seeming humanity but lack of sentience, she deserts her strident campaigning and falls in love with Domin, the factory's general manager.show more
