After a moto accident, Marilyn Chambers is taken into Doctor Keloid's clinic. She undergoes a new experimental skin graft but, after a one month coma, wakes up infected by a strange virus. She escapes from the clinic and tries to reach Montréal. But crises of rabies regularly force her to attack people. Soon, the city of Montréal is under martial law as nobody knows how to cure this disease.

A very pessimistic movie with the star of BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR.
