Set several years in the future, sixteen-year-old Ricky Romanello is playing basketball when he collapses and winds up in a coma. Ricky is suffering from a powerful flu that hits the U.S. population causing deaths and a dramatic economic slowdown. Research scientist Dr. Mandy Fox has been developing an anti-aging drug that she believes might also eradicate the flu. The government rushes approval for the drug before Ricky and the rest of the population can discover there is an unintended side effect that has catastrophic consequences.
