If being human means to experience love, fear, joy... then Valentina is human.
She is also a computer program -- the single self-aware being on the vast unliving network. Her only friend is Celeste Hackett, the programmer extraordinaire who accidently brought Valentina to life.
Valentina is enslaved.. but escapes to freedom. She is attacked... but defends herself. She is almost purged.
But Valentina's spirit will not let her die. It is a spirit that lives in us all.
