When Beth Emhoff returns home after visiting an opening ceremony for a new factory, she complains of jet lag and her husband, Thomas Emhoff, thinks nothing of it. He becomes concerned when she falls ill, even more so when she has a seizure in front of him and has to be rushed to hospital. It comes as a shock to Thomas when she dies; her cause of death: a highly contagious and rapidly mutating bird flu virus that spreads via human contact. The virus is spreading so fast there is no vaccine or cure for it.
Thomas soon discovers that it's not just his town; all over the country and all over the world, people are succumbing to the virus; what started out between two people spread to four, then to sixteen and within three months, scientists estimate that one billion people could end up infected. People are being told to stay out of contact with others; The President of the United States has to be moved underground for his own safety, and thousands of airports become deserted. However, the truth is being kept from the public and it is up to Thomas to find out what it is and just what caused the death of his wife.
