Cross over the border into the wasteland of Scotland where a viral outbreak ushers in the dark age of DOOMSDAY.
In 2008 a viral outbreak called the Reaper Virus hit Scotland so badly that the country was quarantined off from neighboring England. Twenty-five years later, Eden Sinclair, who was one of the last to escape as a little girl, leads a team back into the hot zone to find the counteragent because the virus has re-emerged in London. Wandering through the wasteland of a once familiar Scotland, they discover that contamination is the least of the worries. Glasgow is now home to a clan of feral survivors whom Eden and her team battle to survive. A little Mad Max, a little 28 Days Later, Doomsday goes in some surprisingly violent, gory, and humorous directions as it deals with class structures, border control, and human nature.
