African virus jumps to humans. 100% kill rate. It didn't stop there. The dead rise to feed on the living. A Paris flight; a Big Easy dinner; a ship to the Bahamas; a U.S. Senator; a buffet of ape meat flown in from Kinshasa. A common theme. The living just trying to survive, find refuge, survive assaults. Violence unravels to an apocalyptic ending where a cure is available, but the end isn't.
