STARRING:

“Always determined to balance its heavy themes with frivolity.”

The year is 2025. On a quiet, smoggy night in a quaint coastal town in North Goa, a self-driving taxi crashes into a human pedestrian, killing him instantaneously.

Hard-boiled Cyber Crime agent Saajan Kundu arrives at the scene and makes a startling deduction: the car was hacked and manipulated into murdering the victim. The victim’s face is damaged beyond recognition. His body bears no identifiable marks. There is simply no way of knowing who the victim is. In spite of this, Saajan’s extreme suspicion of technology and those who control it, drives him to order arrest warrants against the CEO of the taxi company, and laughably, at the self-driving taxi itself. One person, however, stands in the way of Saajan’s unceasing paranoid campaign against technology -Laxmi Suri.
Laxmi is the founding member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Every Robot, a robot rights protection organization, designed to keep all intelligent machines out of harm’s way. Laxmi invalidates the car’s arrest and strikes down Sajaan’s tech-phobic rhetoric with sharp, incisive arguments, laying out the fact that machines are agnostic but corruptible tools. If garbage goes in, garbage comes out. What is truly worth arresting, Laxmi proposes, is the malleable nature of human morality. Her arrival at the crime scene triggers jurisdictional battles, flawed interpretations of AI laws, and a deeper debate on the nature of consciousness.
