In a dystopian future, most of humanity has been infected by what is referred to as the "zombie fungus." The infected, known as "the hungries," quickly lose their mental capacity and feed on the flesh of the uninfected. Much is known about how the fungus is contracted, but little is known about how to stop it.

The few remaining survivors, heavily guarded in London, are attempting to find a cure by studying a small group of infected children. Although the children are relatively docile, the study requires the scientists to kill most of the test subjects, something that a teacher named Helen (Gemma Arterton) finds appalling. When one child, Melanie (Sennia Nanua), is selected for dissection by head scientist Caroline Caldwell (Glenn Close), Helen chooses to risk everything to save her.

Adapted from the M.R. Carey novel of the same name.
