In Umbrella Corporation's underground genetics experimentation and bioweapon research facility known as The Hive, a thief steals virus samples and purposely drops one during his escape. The Hive's administrator, an AI called the Red Queen, seals off the complex and kills everyone in an attempt to stop the virus's spread. She doesn't report the reason for her actions to the company. Believing that she has become homicidal, Umbrella dispatches a security force to determine what happened and shut her down. In the above-ground mansion that hides an emergency entrance, they find one of their own suffering from amnesia: Alice. Alice's mind contains many secrets. Yet, before she can remember, the team discovers one on their own: The Red Queen didn't permanently kill anyone.
