Plots

A futuristic action thriller where a team of people work to prevent a disaster threatening the future of the human race. - Anonymous

A lethal virus spreads throughout Scotland, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands. To contain the threat, acting authorities brutally quarantine the country as it succumbs to fear and chaos. The quarantine is successful. Three decades later, the Reaper virus violently resurfaces in London. An elite group of specialists, including Eden Sinclair, is urgently dispatched into Scotland to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare. - Nicolettea

Back in 2008, the uncontrollable and utterly devastating Reaper Virus smites Scotland, claiming thousands of innocent lives. Almost three decades later, in 2037--and with the land still being in quarantine--the lethal virus manages somehow to re-emerge, and as a result, the Prime Minister summons a hand-picked team of disposable heroes led by Major Eden Sinclair to retrieve possible survivors, and, hopefully, a radical cure. However, in this nightmarish land, no one truly knows what horrors remain hidden deep within the scorched and unstable quarantine zone. Is there an escape from doomsday? - Nick Riganas

Great Britain, 2007. A deadly plague, known as the "Reaper Virus," has broken out, killing hundreds of thousands in its wake. In desperation, the British Government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area, and then builds a wall, preventing the remainder from escaping. Thirty years later, with the wall still up and the victims all but forgotten, the virus breaks out again. The Government decides to send a crack team of operatives, led by Major Eden Sinclair, into the hot zone to investigate the possibility of a cure. - manikman
