Robert Morgan presumes himself to be the last man on earth after a killer disease sweeps across the world. Those who are infected develop vampire-like traits: an aversion to sunlight, a hatred of mirrors, and allergic reactions to garlic. There are even rumors of those who die from the virus rising from the grave to walk the earth in undeath.
Seemingly immune, Morgan was tragically forced to watch his colleagues, friends and even his own family slowly succumb to the disease, leaving him as the last known survivor. By day, Morgan scavenges the city for supplies while killing and disposing of the remaining infected - if he doesn't, they return to hunt him after the sun goes down.
Morgan is haunted by the memories of his dying family and his failure to develop a cure in order to save them - but that all changes when he finds evidence that there may be more survivors.
