Written by John Dryden.
Diane Harper (Emily Beecham), a British civil servant, is sent to the Oxfordshire countryside to investigate the suicide of a government scientist.
It is five years after a devastating pandemic that has wiped out half the world's population. Diane's young daughter died during the outbreak and she can't get over it. When she discovers that the dead scientist had been briefing a journalist who has subsequently gone missing, she absconds from her job and embarks on a desperate search for the truth about the origins of the outbreak.
