The mutations just don't seem to be following the normal pattern!
(There are Spoilers) End of the human race via a deadly and unstoppable
infectious disease or virus is the storyline of the the made for TV
Were told that a US military/industrial operation for the US Army
involving the drug company Gensystems got involved in a top-secret
biological research experiment that suddenly went berserk when it. The
by-product of the experiment, was introduced to the public as a
fertility drug. One of the scientists working on this drug Jonathon
Parker, Berry Bell, unwitting gave it to his wife Holly, Pamala Reed,
to increase her chances of getting pregnant who eventually gave birth
to twins two normal and healthy girls Alex & Lucy, Elke Larson & Kylie
Larson, who were born with the virus in their systems. It was much
later when they were in Gabon Africa with their father at the
Gensystems Camp Rafflesla Research Facility that all hell broke loose
when the two girls accidentally ate these genetically grown green
barriers that brought the dormant and deadly virus out into the open.
Spreading across the Atlantic after wiping out the entire Camp
Rafflesla staff, except Lucy & Alex, the virus enters the US through a
shipment of monkeys slated to be used for experimental purposes at Ft.
Detrick MD. Within days it kills dozens of persons who as much as came
in contact with either the monkeys or persons or were infected, by
being bitten or sneezed at, by them.
The movie gets a bit complicated when Doctor Maj. Carman Travis, Judith
Light, and her colleague at Ft. Detrick Capt. Arends, Bill Nunn, start
to uncover what's behind all these deaths. With the help of an unknown
worker at Gensystems they come up with a government plan to use
biological warfare against an enemy country by infecting It's people
with the deadly drug. The plan was to sneak the drug into country as
green berries and then have the virus activated by's it's population
As both Maj. Travis & Capt. Arends get closer to the truth they find
where the experiment were being conducted at a closed down US Army
installation in Mississippi called Ft. Willard. Capt. Arends finding a
secret CD disk in the forts computer room he later comes in contact
with one of the persons who was very much involved in the experiments a
former worker for Gensystems Dr. Larrimore, Joe Insoe. Dr. Larrimore
reluctantly, when he realized that millions of lives are at stake,
reveals the whole truth behind the experiments at the fort and who was
Maj. Travis desperately trying to get a antidote, from the two carriers
Alex & Lucy, made and immediately used to inoculate the American public
from the virus is stymied by her boss Col.John O. Bailey, Philip Bosso.
Unknown to Maj.Travis was involved with the covert experiments at Ft.
Willard with Gensystems some ten years ago. Col Bailey will do
anything, even murder, to keep the truth form coming out about his and
the US military and the president of Gensystems Frank Sanborn (Nicholas
Pryor), who had earlier committed suicide, involvement in them.
Nail biting but predictable ending with Maj. Travis and Col. Bailey,
Maj. Travis superior, facing off as the two sergeants under Col.
Bailey's command are left with the unenviable dilemma of arresting Maj.
Travis thus letting the entire country go to hell. The solders are thus
faced with having hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans
die from this deadly and uncountable virus, in following their
commanding officers Col. Bailey orders. Or using their common sense and
rejecting Col. Bailey and letting Maj. Travis gets the very important
antidote out, in the little time that she has left, to the American
public in order to save them. You can just guess what their decision
