It isn't long before he loses consciousness,so Lucy quickly calls an ambulance. According to the EMT, David hasn't taken anyimmunosuppressants since the implant was installed.

The EMT asks Lucy basic questions about Davidfor his record, eventually learning he used to go to Arasaka. Then, when David awakens strapped to a gurney,Lucy asks him which pills he's taking, only to be alerted when the EMT drives the ambulancefaster. After that, the EMT points a gun at David,determined to get his Sandevistan and sell it. Without warning, Lucy kicks the gurney Davidis lying on, hitting the EMT.

Lucy also asks the Ripperdoc where the boy'simmunosuppressants are. But when David makes it clear he has no money,Lucy decides to buy his medication for him using the datashards they stole and goes outside. Meanwhile, Doc reminds David to only use theSandevistan two to three times a day, saying.

It will scramble his brain. Thankfully, that makes David realize thata single implant can turn him into a Cyberpsycho. As David leaves the clinic, he tells Lucyhe needs more Eurodollars or “eddies” for rent. So, Lucy takes him to her apartment for thetime being, and the two share a drink. Then, Lucy borrows David's jacket and projectsthe word “Edgerunners” on its back, which is another word for cyberpunk. Edgerunners are people who live on the Edge,determined to oppose megacorporations with the help of cyberware.

She knows that David wants to become one,but the boy isn't sure yet. Then, David starts talking about his motherand how she used to work hard for him. He also confesses that he only stayed at ArasakaAcademy for his mother, wanting to climb the corporate ladder for her. A bit confused, Lucy tells David to find hisown dream since it's obvious that he's different from his mother.

Go to the moon. It's Lucy's dream to visit the moon one day,and David enjoys the moment with her. However, David is interrupted by a big guywho claims that the Sandevistan cyberware belongs to him. David can only look at Lucy, who's nonchalantlysmoking and not doing anything to help him, and the huge man soon attacks him. Moments later, David regains consciousnesswhile being held upside down by the man, who talks to his friends about the Sandevistan. The man, whose name is Maine, simply wantsto rip the cyberware off David's body to avoid.

Spending eddies. But Lucy, who's actually a member of Maine'sEdgerunner crew, stops him, asking him not to get blood all over her room. As it turns out, Lucy is the one who calledMaine to her apartment, and Maine asks the boy why he's parading the Sandevistan around. Maine also adds that he bought and paid forit, but his supplier disappeared after the transaction. Maine continues talking about the woman who'ssupposed to give him the Sandevistan, and at that moment, David realizes that the sellerwas his mother.

Then, upon learning from David that Gloriadied in a car accident, Maine finally releases him. Maine feels bad for David, but he remindsthe boy that the Sandevistan cyberware still belongs to him. David insists he's unaware of that, askingMaine and his friends, Pilar and Dorio, if they're cyberpunks. David also asks Maine to let him keep theSandevistan since he can't pay him back but promises he'll work it off, one gig at a time. However, Maine refuses since the cyberwareis military-grade.

Despite that, David asks them to give hima chance, saying he'll fire up the Sandevistan. Of course, Maine and his buddies don't believehe can use it without keeling over, so David uses it for the ninth time that night to quicklygrab Pilar’s cigarette and return it. As he wipes his bleeding nose, David onceagain asks Maine to give him a chance to prove himself and return whatever he paid Gloria. David wants Maine to take him out on a job,and after careful consideration, the big guy finally agrees. He says David only has one chance, and ashe leaves with his crew, Lucy gives the boy a tracer.

Afterward, Lucy reveals that he informed Maineabout the Sandevistan after they went to see Doc. David can't believe that Lucy was lying tohim the entire time, but he eventually goes home. The next day, the principal once again callsDavid to inform him that Arasaka Academy has decided to grant him a scholarship for hisexemplary academic performance. The principal also tells David that he needsto apologize to Katsuo, so the boy still refuses to go to school. Then, he receives a call from Maine, who instructshim to go to Aldo's.

There, David meets Kiwi, another netrunnerin Maine's group. Wasting no time, Maine instructs David toinsert a datashard into the slot in his neck, which shows him footage of the Arasaka Corpdriverand bodyguard, Maxim, betting at a fighting arena. Maine wants them to swipe the navigation datafrom the limousine Maxim drives, making sure the man's favorite fighter will be defeatedby someone they know, which means he'll also lose his money. Of course, this will lead Maxim to go to abar to drink, where David will make his move. As Maxim gets drunk and passes out, Davidtakes his key and gives it to Dorio, who makes.

A copy of it to open the limousine. Then, David must return the key to the unconsciousMaxim while Maine and Kiwi steal the navigation data. Unfortunately, Maxim wakes up when his bosscalls him, and Dorio isn't done with the key yet. With no other choice, Maine instructs Davidto grab the key and head to the car. He also orders another crew member, Rebecca,to distract Maxim, so the girl spills her drink on him. Meanwhile, David gets inside the limousinewith Lucy, who starts hacking into the car's.

System. Inside the bar, Maxim realizes the key ismissing and rushes to the car. Kiwi immediately informs Lucy and David ofthe situation, and Lucy eventually hacks into the system. However, security quickly goes back online,and the two get locked inside the car. Maxim also finds them and shoots the window,so Maine orders David to drive. Despite not knowing how to drive, David startsthe car and speeds away. But as Maine tells him to head to Aldo's,Lucy states they can't use the GPS. She also points out they will be tracked soon,but Maine makes it clear that going to Aldo's.

Is the only choice they have. Then, Lucy sends David the route. Soon enough, Tyger Claws bikers go after themto take the car, making Lucy realize that Maxim put a bounty on the vehicle. Still, David continues to drive, only to bestopped by traffic. That makes him remember the car accident withGloria, so he swerves to the other side of the highway. Because of that, one of the bikers crashesinto the car in front of them. The other one continues to pursue David andLucy, but David, who's using the Sandevistan,.

Gets rid of him by avoiding an oncoming truckand causing him to collide with it instead. Then, David returns to the other side of thehighway and eventually reaches Aldo's with Lucy. The two get out of the car, but the otherbiker follows them there and attacks David. So, Lucy engages in a fight with him, allowingDavid to use the Sandevistan to knock the biker down. Still, the biker gets up and kicks David,forcing Lucy to use her Monowire to cut off the guy's arm. That doesn't stop the biker and prepares tokill David, but Maine shows up and blocks.

His attack with the car. Then, Maine gets out of the vehicle and punchesthe biker, eventually shooting the man with his gun and obliterating him. That night, David celebrates with Maine'sgroup. The big guy praises David for doing well andwelcomes him to the crew, but he reminds the boy not to trust anyone too much. Then, Maine gives David enough immunosuppressantsfor a month, also giving him his cut and advising him to upgrade his cyberware. Afterward, a man named Faraday arrives, andthe three eyes on the right side of his face.

Make him look intimidating. As it turns out, he commissioned Maine's crewto steal the navigation data, and he's not happy with the team's improvisation. He states that he needed to learn about Mr.Tanaka's routines and the places he frequents, but because Maine's crew stole the limousine,the man tightened his security and already switched sites. This means the data that Maine's group stoleis now useless, but when Maine asks Faraday to explain further, the man refuses. Maine is enraged that they’re being leftin the dark, but Faraday points out that he's.

Paying them to do whatever he wants. Then, he tells Maine they'll wait for Mr.Tanaka to lower his guard again, saying he'll be in touch before leaving. Once Faraday is gone, Maine informs Davidthat the man is a top fixer, and they get their gigs from him. Moments later, David receives a call fromthe principal, who wants him to apologize to Katsuo before returning to school. However, David has no intention of doing thatand ends the call, determined to start a new life without letting anyone walk all overhim.
