A Peek Into The Storyline
Initially, it introduces the major protagonist Christian Wolff, an accountant by profession. From childhood, Wolff was diagnosed with high-functioning autism.

The story moves ahead as he is employed as an auditor at Living Robotics. Soon, the CEO, Lamar Blackburn claims that $62 million is missing from the house of the female lead Dana Cummings.
