Sonny is a robot who lives in a world where robots are governed by the Three Laws.

First Law: A robot must never harm a human being or, through inaction, allow any human to come to harm.

Second Law: A robot must obey the orders given to them by human beings, except where such orders violate the First Law.

Third Law: A robot must protect its own existence unless this violates the First or Second Laws.

He is programmed to be able to break these laws, giving him depth and empathy that allows him to help save the day.
