In a utopian world where violence and crime are largely eradicated through the genetic elimination of emotions, people like Nia and Silas live a quiet and uneventful life. They work to produce information in a large office and exchange only polite phrases.
Life is simple, until a rumor begins to swirl; a disease that causes people to express emotions has broken out. The infected people who are discovered by the authorities are sent away and are never allowed to return. Silas suspects that he is carrying the disease, and when this is confirmed, he is rejected. Despite this, he is dragged back to Nia, who is also infected, but has managed to hide the symptoms far better than him. When they discover that both are infected, they must make a choice; stay and continue to hide or escape.
