In a future where self-control is the single most important quality in human development, “Trial Child: Nurture a Better Nature” imagines a society in which couples can purchase a robotic replica of their own would-be child. When potential parents Dan and Peg put everything they have into their own Trial Child, Torrent, it’s impossible to discern whether or not their decision has made life easier, or something else entirely.
