A renowned scientist is brutally murdered at ChemGen Pharmaceuticals and leaves behind an undecipherable chemical formula. A thousand miles away, deep in the Amazon rainforest, two tourists are devoured by an enormous plant. Only one man, biochemist Dr. Ben Maxwell, suspects that these horrific attacks are related.
Soon Ben and his team are under attack by plant forms of unspeakable abilities. A local Brazilian tycoon offers to help the scientists, but he too has an agenda: to control the secret of the mysterious growth compound responsible for creating the killer plants.
In a fight to survive the attacks from both plant and man, Ben leads the team to solve the mysterious formula written by their murdered boss. In doing so, the scientists uncover a potential blockbuster drug from the bizarre plant's DNA. But life cannot be so easily controlled, and they unwittingly unleash a lethal botanical threat. In race against time and nature, Ben must uncover a way to stop to infectious plants, even as others aim to protect the secrets of the rainforest at any cost. While unbeknownst to all, the biogenetic creation has its own agenda...and will not be stopped.
From the depths of the Amazon rainforests to the boardrooms of the healthcare conglomerates, three unlikely heroes -- an engineer, a scientist and a computer hacking kid -- are all that stand in the way of an unspeakable plague and the horror that mankind's impatient experiments have spawned.
