In 1989, Dr. Nancy Jaax, a researcher with the United States' Army, is approached to study a virus that appeared in chimpanzees in a Washington, D.C., laboratory.
Nancy's research in a secure lab reveals that Ebola might have finally reached the United States.
Ebola had never been detected on U.S. soil before that year.
Nancy faces an uphill battle: Ebola has a 90 percent mortality rate. The virus spreads effortlessly via bodily fluids. One infected person can quickly spread it to others. It can rapidly topple a civilization.
There's no vaccine.
There's no cure.
Nancy must race against the clock to find a solution.
