An unidentified infectious disease suddenly breaks out, causing widespread destruction. The disease infects its victims through their respiratory organ and it takes only 36 hours for the infected to die. A desperate struggle ensues by individuals to coral the out of control epidemic.

The worst epidemic ever seen is sweeping through Bundang, the suburb where is just 19 kilometers away from Seoul-the megalopolis with more than 11 million residents.

After smuggling illegal immigrants into the country, Byung-woo dies from an unknown virus. Soon after that, the same symptoms are plaguing scores of residents in Bundang. People are helpless against the airborne disease and the number of infected increases quickly, spreading chaos.

As the worst-case scenario precaution, the government orders a complete knockdown and now the town is about to be sealed off.
