Sometime in the future, people have taken their worship of the rich and famous to new levels. They wolf down food made from celebrities' skin cells, and the Lucas Clinic offers ravenous fans a chance to get closer to their favourite stars by allowing themselves to be injected with viruses culled from the bodies of their idols. The company is very successful, but employee Syd March (Caleb Landry Jones) is just a lowly cog in the machine. He supplements his income by smuggling popular viruses out of the lab in his own body and selling them illegally. However, he gets more than he bargained for when he infects himself with a virus carried by beautiful superstar Hannah Geist (Sarah Gadon). After Hannah dies from her illness, Syd panics and must find a way to cure himself.
