A woman of science must step up and become a leader and, hopefully, a savior. A first responder finds himself fighting for the lives of thousands. Valiant medical workers face near impossible tasks while risking their very lives. A health worker must trace the origins of the gruesome disease-he not only finds its source, but also its most innocent victim.
