Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) is a retired United Nations investigator, who devotes his time to his wife Karin (Mireille Enos) and daughters Constance (Sterling Jerins) and Rachel (Abigail Hargrove).

On a drive through Philadelphia, they see the spread of a disease which transforms people into merciless predators with a single bite.

Gerry’s old boss at the UN, Thierry Umutoni (Fana Mokoena), guarantees Karin, Constance and Rachel passage on an aircraft carrier if Gerry will travel behind enemy lines to discover the source of the outbreak.

The search ends at a World Health Organisation compound where Gerry and Israeli soldier (Daniella Kertesz) join doctors (Peter Capaldi, Pierfrancesco Favino, Ruth Negga, Moritz Bleibtreu) in the race for a cure.
