One line summary: Future horror thriller: diseases are big business, lucrative crime, and silent weapons.
Edward Porris reports to a clinic to get infected with the same disease that celebrity Hannah Geist has. Syd is his handler and the protagonist of the film. He reassures people to keep going with their stated choices.
Syd is also a part of the celebrity meat market. Cells from celebrities are used to reproduce (in relatively large quantities) muscle tissue that is sold as steaks and the like. Arvid is his contact in the meat sales.
Syd gets a new sample from Hannah Geist, and gives it to himself. He's knocked out for a while. When he wakes up, Hannah is dead, and Syd was one of the last people to see her alive. Arvid would like Syd to give him a sample of this, since Arvid could make a huge profit on it. Syd claims not to have any knowledge of what killed her.
Everyone is up in arms about Hannah's passing, especially at the Lucas Clinic, the company where Syd works. Syd stays ill, and consults with Arvid, who takes him to Levine. Levine forcibly takes a sample of the Hannah Geist pathogens. Syd tries to escape, but he is way too weak. They dump him on the street later. Nice. Thugs from another group kidnap him. They take him to Dr. Abendroth, who has come from Germany to do an autopsy on Hannah. First, though, the doctor wishes to see what is happening with the living specimen, Syd.
Doctor Abendroth tells him that the virus he has was designed to deflect diagnosis, but that he had gotten around the viruses protections. Hannah is still alive, but further along in the disease. They talk. Hannah's family has traced the disease back to Lucas Clinic, and hope that Syd will find out who at Lucas designed it. Syd has to retrace his steps, this time with an entirely different purpose.
Something sinister is afoot. Will Syd be able to help Hannah? Will he survive the effort?
