In the near future humanity has been almost wiped out by a disease which robs sufferers of their free will and creates a craving for human flesh.

At an army base in rural England a small band of hybrid children who are infected but retain emotion and free will are kept captive. One of the children, Melanie, is hugely intelligent and forms a special bond with Miss Justineau (Gemma Arterton) who is tasked with schooling the children. She is less fond of disciplinarian Sgt. Parks (QUAD Patron Paddy Considine) and Dr Caldwell (Glenn Close) who carries out experiments on the children in the search for a cure. But when the base is attacked these characters must band together and embark on a perilous journey to safety during which Melanie will confront her true nature as something neither human or monster, but something else entirely.

A fantastic British thriller, adapted by writer M. R. Carey from his own bestselling novel.
