The series centers around two androids, Father and Mother, sent from Earth with the job of raising human children on Kepler-22b after the Earth was destroyed as part of a nuclear war. As their colony of humans starts to fail, they are further torn apart by the appearance of the Ark, and the religious differences between its human believers, known as the Mithraic, and the programming of the Androids.
