After an outbreak of a mutated form of rabies that spreads from animals to humans, over 7 billion humans are dead or infected. People who are bitten turn rabid in 90 seconds. Morgan (Matt Smith) was riding in a car with his wife Janet (Agyness Deyn) when they were attacked. He was infected, but remained human with the ability to talk with the infected.
Now with a large group of civilians, CDC scientists and U.S. military in an underground nuclear base, Morgan and virologist Dr. Gina Rose (Natalie Dormer) bring in the infected and interrogate them, hoping to find Patient Zero and devise a cure. Gina struggles with tensions between herself, Morgan, and Colonel Knox (Clive Standen), compounded by Knox being attracted to Gina while she is currently intimate with Morgan. While interrogating an infected, who Morgan has named Joe Cocker (Frederick Schmidt), Knox shoots the patient.
Getting closer to finding Patient Zero, Morgan visits with Janet, who is caged in the underground base. She is being treated with an experimental treatment derived from Morgan's blood. In a flashback, Morgan wanted to have children with his wife, while she didn't want any.
Gina is shown with a positive pregnancy test. Bodies of fallen soldiers are being cremated when one opens his eyes and attacks the workers and soldiers. He is subdued and asks to speak with Morgan, who is surprised that the patient is unaffected by the music that has driven the other infected into a rage. The team assume he is closely linked to Patient Zero. The patient reveals that he was a professor and his school was attacked by the infected. He was bitten, but still maintains most of his human abilities. The Professor (Stanley Tucci) tells Morgan that the infected are evolved humans, a more advanced species who are at the top of the rapidly dwindling food chain. Morgan finds that another of the patients, who Morgan had named Pete Townshend (James Northcote), has a transmitter inside his chest, revealing that the infected laid a trap to learn where the base is.
