The near future: humans have been affected
by a fungal disease that turns victims into
flesh eating "hungries". Only a small group of
children seem unaffected. At an army base in
England, this group of unique children retain
normal thoughts and emotions, but being
subjected to cruel experiments by scientist Dr.
Caldwell, whose aims to search for a cure. One
little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest.
When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with
her favorite teacher Miss Justineau, Sgt. Parks
and Dr. Caldwell. And Melanie must discover
what she is and ultimately decide both her own
future and that of the human race.
