Plot:
On a remote island somewhere in South-West Asia a weird animal infection outbreak is detected.

A charitable institution official, Maria, who has been researching this disease, learns that in a village not so far away, symptoms similar to those of the infected animals are detected in the human body.

When she arrives at the village, she is surprised by the blood tests results, while frightened and desperate villagers are burning the infected live-stock.

All of a sudden Rick and his gang of mercenaries assault the place and kill everybody.

Nonethless, Maria manages to send the virus data to Russia. These tests disclose the virus's deadly nature: irreversible mental disorders that eventually lead to suicide.

Two weeks later, there is no news from Maria. In order to find the Russian scientist, who is the daughter of a high-ranked Russian official, a special unit undertakes a rescue mission.

Some civilians are taking part in this mission: microbiologist Vadim, his assistant Yulya and a young computer genius, Maks.

What is the real goal of this team? What is the Korean secret service agent Jan Hen-Vu concealing? What is the link between Rick and the pharmaceutical tycoon Mr Hunt?..
