After losing his child to a terrorist attack, a scientist works to get a toddler with DNA that could unlock the secret to saving humanity from a mysterious virus back to safety and away from those who want to capture her and use her to commit genocide.
A world-weary loner who used to be a scientist is one of a handful of survivors of a population-decimating virus, barely living in an imperiled dystopian world. When he comes upon a small child whose DNA carries the virus, and secrets to use it for good or for evil, he commits to getting her to safety as a ruthless gang seeks to use her for their own enrichment.
In a future world ravaged by disease, a cowardly scientist is tasked with escorting an immune baby across the wasteland after her caretaker dies.
