“In the industrial town of Pancevo, after the incident at the railway station, a dangerous biochemical toxin becomes airborne in the middle of the night, poisoning the inhabitants. The infection spreads all over the town and it seems like the Armageddon is happening.
Meanwhile, a police-escorted prisoner transport supervised by Interpol sets off from Vršac to Belgrade. On Interpol's request, transport is joined by an experienced detective Dragan Vukovic, who decided to transfer to a desk job in Belgrade after his wife died. A seemingly routine assignment escalates into a hellish fight for survival.
The route leads the transport through Pancevo, where they encounter an ecological disaster and infected people who are trying to kill them. Detective Vukovic and the Interpol agents soon realize that their only chance for escape from the infected hordes lies in allying with the dangerous, mysterious prisoner. The escape from Pancevo becomes their common goal. While the evil runs through the streets, they must survive in hope that they will be able to avoid the impending apocalypse.”
