A patient awakes in a hospital. She is unable to remember who she is or how she got there, but she does know that she has to get out. She is urged to do something, something that is of vital importance....Four research scientists are freezing, terrified and together in the basement of the Institute of Plant Industry, forced to make impossible choices to protect life-saving seed samples against an invading army, a starving population and each other.
