The outer world faces a plague that has affected almost 90% of the population of the world. The plague is spreading at a very fast rate with the help of the bacterium that burrows through the people’s brains and destroys them from inside. This transforms them into hyper and aggressive predators. They begin to kill and feed on other humans.

He gets badly wounded in the process and seeks the help of a few survivors. However, a deep rift develops among the survivors which causes him to come into action again. In the middle of the widespread chaos, he seems to be pursued by another threat as someone is trying to what he has in any way possible.
