"The Cold War is history," the narrator begins, "but Russia is in the grip of an arms race--an evolutionary arms race, with an enemy the naked eye cannot see." After some scenes of predators catching their prey, and bacteria multiplying under a microscope, we find ourselves in a room crowded with prison inmates--some of them coughing. "A deadly microbe is evolving in Russia's prisons," the narrator continues ominously, "consuming the bodies of men. As it escapes prison walls, it attacks new prey, without preference, without warning." Suddenly we are transported to New York City. "Now the killer is spreading beyond Russia, and no one is immune. Unseen, the microbe is evolving into mutants that may soon elude our best defenses. Will we lose this arms race, or can we reach an evolutionary truce with a mortal enemy?"
