Branded as a monster, a cyborg spends his days in a dark room. One day, an android, a being superior to a cyborg, decides to attempt to befriend the ostracized cyborg. However, the cyborg sees the android as an annoyance as opposed to a potential ally. After this, things start changing. Will light finally prevail through the darkness, or will the cyborg choose to remain in the darkness?
