When a group of scientist work to develop a bactrium to increase food yields is delayed by bureaocratic processes, Dr. Celia Graham (Brenda Donahue) ignores protocols and developes a bacteria called M3.

The new bacteria is accidentally released and causes sickness in children and death in others around the world. The disease is highly contagious, and the epidemic increases geometrically. Dr. Graham is killed by the virus, while an infected but unaffected woman spreads the disease in the manner of Typhoid Mary.

Scientists Dr. Bill Fuller (Daniel Pilon) and Dr. Jessica Morgan (Kate Ried) work tirelessly to develop an antidote to stop the contagion.
