They Named Him Primo
by Jaka Tomc
The year is 2048. Primo is one of the 40,000 androids that have lost their freedom overnight. The reason for his incarceration? A murder. An android butchered a boy. The bizarre nature of the crime confuses everyone, given that these brilliant beings are programmed to follow an incorruptible code that explicitly forbids them to kill or harm any mortal.
As the interrogations begin, the terrorization of the androids ensues. Can politicians imprison an entire species into modern-day concentration camps after what appears to be an isolated incident? Is the sole purpose of their actions the global extinction of these technological marvels, or do they intend to release them? Or is everything part of a bigger plan that no living soul can grasp?
