A pandemic has broken out, and a seemingly harmless, fluenza-like virus has spread across North America. People infected have become weak, nauseated, dizzy and can't hold down ANY food whatsoever.

Flynn, a nineteen year old girl, has been sick for the past three months. She's been living life normally, just with a lack of appetite and a stomach that rejects all food. Her doctor, tracking her progress and noticing significant weight loss, has her admitted to the hospital to get nutrients given through an I.V. She seems to be improving, but her hunger does not fade, and the illness doesn't cease. She starts to realize that her hunger isn't for normal food. No, this hunger, is for something else... something that a hospital is chalked full of... human organs and blood.

After her first feed, she fears what the world will come to if all others infected with this virus will start to recognize their hunger as well...
