"Tokio. Un inmenso y labertíntico hotel, barrios y callejones desconocidos, personas que parecen autómatas y robots que parecen personas. Una convención sobre inteligencia artificial. Así es la ciudad donde Max, un solitario empleado de la Corporación Géminis, se moverá en busca de un sentido que organice su vida. En medio de ese entorno en que la realidad se le vuelve cada vez más confusa -- el recelo que despierta en sus compañeros, la difícil comunicación con su esposa, los efectos del jet-lag y de un accidente que sufrió hace poco tiempo -- conoce a una enigmática camarera, Mai, que se convertirá en la única persona en quien confiar." --From publisher's description

Max, the sole employee of an international corporation, finds himself in Tokyo for an artificial intelligence conference, overwhelmed by the city and its inhabitants--people who act like robots and robots who seem like people. He can only relate to one person, the waitress Mai
