A robot stranded on Io, Jupiter's moon, is bound by the laws of robotics. When a distress signal is received from humans in need, the robots goes to help, but he finds challenges the meaning of what it is to be human.

Overall a solid story, this short story was interesting and thoughtful, but could have explored the story a bit further.
