All over Ireland people begin to drop dead around a young mechanic named Eric Ward. At first Eric believes it to be just a
lethal virus, but all that changes when the dead start to come back to life and the giant man-eating-rats appear with a
voracious appetite for human flesh. Eric’s pregnant girlfriend and ailing grandmother need to be brought to hospital to be
inoculated and protected from the virus. But getting there will be nearly impossible as the streets are now overrun by the
giant vermin and psychotic creatures that were once his neighbours and friends. Eric finds himself in a battle to stay
alive long enough to save his loved ones.
